New Delhi (CNN)Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” — a live action remake of the 1991 animated film — has been wowing audiences across the globe since its release last week, raking in at least $357 million in the process.
Belle’s bodice from @Beautyandthebeast was beautifully hand embroidered by artisan brothers Kasam and Juma in Bhuj, Western India. They used a technique called “Aari work” which is a very fine chain stitch traditional to the Kutch area of Gujarat. This style lent itself very nicely to this eighteenth century French floral design.
