We Made: Bukhara Embroidery Cushions
Bukhara is an ancient city in the central Asian country of Uzbekistan. It was a prominent stop on the Silk Road trade route between the East and the West, and a major medieval center for Islamic theology and culture.
Bukhara prints are visible in the Islamic architecture, garments and also in day-to-day life. Here is how we made one of our Bukhara prints:
This is how we transferred the pattern on to the fabric. We've used 100% pure silk fabric to make this.
Our inspiration comes from a blog post from Elle Decor among many other Pinterest Pictures. But this picture has just the right kind of Mint and Hot Pink that was required for this project.
This is how the pattern looked after making the first draft.

Olive and Hot Pink compliment each other so much!
TADA..and it's ready :)
