In this small town, on the way from Delhi to Agra, is practiced a craft called phool patti (lit. flowers and leaves) embroidery, so called after the delicate floral patterns hand stitched on soft, light cloth. The artisans are women, mostly from under-privileged Muslim families, who work under the guidance and care of a lady entrepreneur from a local family. Collaborating on producing homeware products with the phool patti ladies of Aligarh is an on-going Adya project that gives life to our vision and has its own story. \nTourists don’t go to Aligarh. However, we’d very much like our guests to meet and know these quiet, dignified workers who live in small-town India and create the beauty that brings us joy.
