Andy Warhol once remarked, “Don’t care about what they write about you, just measure it in inches.” Now, I love that brand of confidence, don’t you?  These marmalade marigolds dangle from the heavens and beckon me to throw on an enormous tutu and prance upon lamps.

For your tapestry, Lady Marmalade, our artisans use kora (thread) to apply the traditional hand-embroidery techniques of Aari, Kashmiri and French Knots. This tapestry also includes the use of a guided thread machine. The tapestry is finished with kardana (faceted glass) and colored beads, as well as, hand-applied block printing to enhance the side borders.

Two artisans work simultaneously on Lady Marmalade. Together, it takes them approximately 48 hours to complete the tapestry, using 22 unique materials for all of the hand-embellishments.
