This is the fruit of my collaboration with Vijay, the Rani (princess) of Mahmudabad.
In 1992, Vijay established ‘Qilasaaz’, a wonderful non-profit project located in North India. Its members work together in the ancient forts of Mahmudabad and Bilehra. They preserve the same old embroidery and sewing techniques that were used in the Raja’s households for generations. This project enables its members to earn a viable monthly income and supports the education of their children.
