Tumbling, free-falling floral strands drape among the wild birds that sing for you. Eat some grapes in Santorini before you dive into lapis lazuli oceans. Magic carpets and words play as we summersault into summer.
For your tapestry, Summer Salt, our artisans use kora (thread), dapka (satin thread) and Ahimsa silk thread to apply the traditional stitching and hand-embroidery techniques of Aari, Fishbone, French Tail, Spring Stitch, and French Knots in addition to a variety of custom stitching to texturize the prominent birds. The tapestry is finished with kardana (faceted glass) and colored beads, as well as, hand-applied block printing to enhance the side borders.
Four artisans work simultaneously on Summer Salt. Together, it takes them approximately 60 hours to complete the tapestry, using 40 unique materials for all of the hand-embellishments.
