PLACEMATS, COASTERS, AND 20" ROUND RUGS
Padukas utilizes various techniques to create one of a kind object of art that are also functional. For example, the placemats, coasters and 20" rugs. Our seamstresses take lengths of jute, wrap it with pieces of fabric, coil into a spiral, and then use a zig zag sewing machine to stitch it together, going round and round.
Rugs are made on a steel loom that allows simple weaving to be done. We make strips of fabric, stitching together into long yardage. One woman folds the strips in on themselves so that the cut ends are hidden inside. Then she makes a running stitch to secure the ends inside. This creates a more finished product with fewer bits of thread sticking out. This adds one more step to the process, thus making more expensive. But the end result is something we are proud to create.
PILLOW COVERS AND YOGA MAT BAGS
The pillow covers and fancy yoga bags are made from re-cycled sarees. When foreigners see the lovely fabrics of India, especially the sarees women are wearing everyday, they wish to take them home. But foreign women rarely have any opportunity to wear a saree. So Padukas takes these beautiful cloths and makes things that a western woman can fit into her life: pillow covers and yoga bags.
