Music, movement and great lighting come together in stillness and bliss. Can we go through the house and paint the refrigerator orange, the television gold and piano bright pink? I’d like to live a colorful life – quite literally.
For your tapestry, Pink Piano, our artisans use a combination of kora (thread), Ahimsa silk thread, and gijai (metal thread) to apply the traditional stitching and hand-embroidery techniques of Aari, and French Knots. 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 Pink Piano. Together, it takes them approximately 45 hours to complete the large tapestry and 14 hours to complete the mini. They use 29 unique materials for all of the hand-embellishments.
