Risks and challenges
The translation of the artwork into an appliqued and quilted product will be done as accurately as possible. However, it will not be an exact replica since what is drawn on paper will be copied using fabric cut outs. The difference in the medium will lead to slight changes, especially depending on the complexity of the artwork.
We are also confident about the delivery timelines we have mentioned, owing to our 13 years of experience working with artisans. If however, there are any delays in production and delivery due to unforeseen circumstances, an update will be immediately sent to the clients about the revised timelines.

A new karigar-based project backed by a homegrown pret label hopes to empower customers to put their own art on their clothes
The Kala Khoj initiative by artisanal pret label, 11.11 /eleven eleven, is set to launch For you: Child Project on October 2. Using indigenous craft techniques of applique (called khatwa in Bihar) and kantha (running stitch embroidery), the project hopes to preserve and celebrate art made by you and your children through clothing and lifestyle products like laptop sleeves, aprons, placemats, quilts, cushion covers and tote bags.
How 11.11/eleven eleven is creating fashion with child art
"The label wants to tell the fashion world how to put artisans first with the help of little ones"
Since its debut at the Delhi Fashion Week with a spring/summer 2009 collection, 11.11/eleven eleven has been questioning the fashion system. Milan, Italy-trained Shani Himanshu launched the slow fashion brand with a limited batch of seasonless garments, employing artisans who worked with indigenous cotton and focused on heritage techniques, such as hand spinning, miniature tie-dye and quilting.
