This one-of-a-kind masterpiece draws inspiration from the necklines of tribal Baluchi women costumes. It is crafted using a special needlework technique called “javak,” which is the most labor intensive out of all the Baluchi embroidery stitches. 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. It takes one master artisan three weeks to craft this piece of art.
