Butterfly Decoration


Crafted by skilled artisans using satin, gold wire, embroidery, sequins, and beads, these butterfly decorations serve as a year-round reminder of nature's beauty. Each ornament is hand-made with care and precision, showcasing the dedication and expertise of the makers.

Handcrafted in India and intricately embroidered using the ancient zardozi tradition. Zari – meaning gold – embroidery originated in Persia and reached India in the 12th century. This is a highly skilled technique that traditionally used gold wires and jewels to embellish courtly robes. Today zardozi work is a rare and respected craft and is recognized as one of the Ancient Handicrafts by the Government of India.

Made by St Nicolas, who for over 30 years have worked with a small Christian charity in Thailand that helps disadvantaged rural women find work in their community, rather than being forced to leave home to work in a factory. Today, some 200 skilled women work at home sewing decorations, and many of them have been doing so for more than 10 years.
