Map Your Story
Ekta began exploring maps as a way of finding a sense of home. The first Map Quilts she created were inspired by her love of the two cities she calls home, London & Delhi. She embroidered these maps with icons that were personal to her, for instance the house where her parents live, the park she loves to watch birds at, the hospital where her baby was born and many more. Her repertoire of map stories is an ever increasing one now. Today, she works on personal commissions where she creates bespoke maps that are a repository of personal histories. A conversation piece.
