A special mandala

Take a textile designer born in the country of carpets - Iran, or ancient Persia - and a company that have manufactured embroidery wool for almost 150 years - Appletons - and get them together, to join a competition created by the Royal School of Needlework - the most famous and ancient needlework school in the UK, established in 1872 and still sponsored by the British Crown - and you can’t get but a winning project!

That means: the Mandala Kit designed by Anil Farzaneh and winner of the contest launched by the Royal School of Needlework back in 2022, using the theme “Celebration”. This design is now a unique needlework kit, with the unmistakable touch of Persian carpets and all the magic of any mandala: the round-shaped figure that in Sanskrit - i.e. ancient Indian, in short - is associated to something sacred, often referring to the Moon or the Sun.

The kit is to be stitched with several Crewel stitches, all perfectly illustrated in the instruction video via QR Code. Just use your handy to scan it and access the complete stitching instructions! This is a further peculiarity of this item, together with the twill canvas included in it and crafted by hand in the UK, to be identical to the linen twill used in 17th and 18th centuries for Scottish and English Crewel Needlework. This twill is an historical canvas, woven still now on ancient looms, complying with strict, historic loom-sate specifications. If we want to stitch something truly precious and 100% out of the ordinary, we can’t miss this mandala!
