Javak Grid Coaster Set

 55

The JAVAK GRID presents a twist on Baluchi motifs that are found in traditional costumes, still worn by local women today. Its beauty lies in the intricate hand-stitching that takes four days to complete, but more importantly from the story. It was two years prior to the launch of Laneh, when our founder first met our artisan partners from the Hoda House, in the slums of Baluchistan, south of Iran and began a series of workshops and skills training programs. During the first days, a design competition was held among 50 participants. The winner would go on to develop this product from prototype creation, to the final finishing and execution.

Process

“Javak” is the name of the particular stitch used in this design, as the local embroiderers call it. It is a style of stitching that is unique among Baluchi people, and the most labor intensive of them all. At first, a grid is embroidered covering the entire surface of the piece, counting every single weave of the fabric. The result will look like a bee-hive. Afterwards contrasting colors are layered on top to fill up the empty spaces. Two or three layers later, not a single trace of the fabric’s surface can be seen. I think you will agree that is the work of an exceptionally patient and hard-working woman.
