Eclipse-Blue Kashmiri Carpet with Knotted Flower Vase
Nothing like a Kashmiri rug to add some personality to your space. Fashioned from pure homegrown silk and finished with rich pastels, this is a one-of-a-kind number. The resham foundation is coloured an inky blue, the kind that characterises the bitterest nights of the Kashmiri winter. The same has been superimposed with knotted stitch embroidery, a technique that is to be found in abundance in the rugs and outerwear produced in the valley, and hemmed in by a strip of shimmering gold brown.
The composite motif of bouqueted foliage conveys a stillness that is also dynamic. Pale greens, blues, oranges, and reds have been interspersed with bits of white and black, each hue being brought out to perfection by the background. Amidst the tips of the tendrils on top flit about a couple of huge butterflies. From the shape of the vase the arrangement is in, it is the kind that is woven at home by grandmothers and grandaunts in Kashmiri homes. Note how one of the tendrils, burdened by a particularly heavy-petalled flower, has broken off and now lies at the foot of the vase.
