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 a choice of a pure silk checked lining or liberty print* The completed pouch measures 15 cm x 10 cm and would make a lovely gift.
*Please note that there is a limited amount of silk checked lining remaining, therefore some materials packs may contain liberty print fabric.
