Ravan Inc introduces to you our new fabric manufacturer,
MDS Fabrics. They offer an extensive line of crewel fabrics
all hand made by artisans and craftsmen of Kashmir India.
Crewel embroidery is a decorative form of surface embroidery
that uses wool and a variety of different embroidery stitches
to follow a design outline applied to the fabric. It carefully
highlights uniformity and consistency in stitches with fine
thread knots. The patterns and motifs are generally floral,
tree of life, birds, geometrical and animal motifs etc.
Crewel fabric is a combination of a base fabric (Cotton, Linen,
Viscose Velvet, Matka Silk, Cotton Velvet, Rayon Velvet, Silk
Organza, Net Fabric, and Jute) with wool crewel embroidery
of various counts and twists. Many different embroidery stitches
are used to create a textured and colorful effect. Unlike
silk or cotton embroidery threads, crewel wool is thicker
and creates a raised, dimensional feel to the work.
