"For me, embroidery is doing what I carry in my heart. I inspire myself when I am making a postcard. As someone said, ‘A piece of our heart is gone along with my creation because I love art.’ I especially like cultural postcards because I inspire myself when I look at, for example, a chola. The designs are the result of watching landscapes. We are seventy women who work in the company and this is our sustenance"
