Stitch by Stitch is a textile design company based in London. We work with small groups of textile artisans including hand loom weavers, embroiderers, cotton growers and quilt-makers, in the Kutch region of north west India, and Nepal. Inspired by many trips to these areas, we reinterpret traditional embroidery stitches and hand loom weaving in a fresh, modern way to create our modern collection of cushions, rugs, blankets and quilts with an east meets west aesthetic!
We are committed to growing a textile brand with ethical production values at its heart. We work with home-based embroiderers, many of whom are members of the Self Employed Women's Association (SEWA) in India, an organisation and a movement representing millions of poor, self-employed women. In Nepal we work with a non-profit organisation promoting the talents of local artisans. Our embroiderers and weavers are able to earn a fair wage, and so gain independence and self-empowerment from their work.
