Cornsilk Carpet from Kashmir with Ari-Embroidered Flowers All-Over

Cornsilk Carpet from Kashmir with Ari-Embroidered Flowers All-Over

The valley between the Himalayas and the Pir Panjal mountain range produces what counts as the stuff of dreams across the world. Endemic wool and silk weavings, silversmithing and pottery, and the highly coveted pashmina and cashmere shawls and jackets are some of the valley's beauteous offerings. However, the most exquisite object to emerge from the local looms is undoubtedly the Kashmiri rug, that is reputed to have carpeted European courts and the homes of the elite since the third century. This cornsilk number is a fine example of the famous Kashmiri rug. It boasts of a palette of statement-making colours - solid reds, dark blues, and earthy browns - and a generous proportion of gorgeous ari embroidery.

Ariwork has an instantly recognisable finish. The style is endemic to Kashmir, and as such no artisan in any other part of the world has the skill to produce such magnificent embroidery. Zoom in on especially the central red panel of this rug to take in its beauty. On the top is a continuous chain stitch supported by multiple small straight stitches beneath, done using locally made crewel needles. The resulting embroidery is of signature florals that include delicately curving tendrils, superbly shaped petals, and numerous other details that are indescribably beautiful. Laying this on your floors and chilling on it on a quiet evening indoors would almost transport you to the exotic Orient.
