This is good design for a good cause. Lost City Products creates hand-embroidered pillows and fabrics made by village artisans in India who would otherwise have no means of making an income.

Conscientious business practices inform all of the contemporary styles this company produces with traditional methods. Among their clever designs are a polka-dot pillow inspired by a DNA double helix, and poetry embroidered on fabrics in different languages. Their textiles, pillows, upholstered chairs, and scarves are available both to the trade and to the public. Additionally, their services are available for custom projects.

An exhibition of this work called Lost City: The Art of Embroidery will be at Magasin Totale starting February 4th.
