Zari Jewellery Pouch This little pouch designed by Cathy was inspired by a visit to India where 'Zari' embroidery using metallic wire on black velvet, has a long history. We are using black cotton velvet, copper wire & colourful DMC threads, with pure silk checked lining*. The completed pouch measures 15 cm x 10 cm and would make a lovely gift.
*Please note that for workshops after 17.10.20, the Zari bag will be lined with liberty print fabric. See photo below.
