    Metal elephant with his happy mahout.

    Elephant with happy mahout riding on it. Wax cast, liquid metal poured into cast and set. This tribal art is from the bastar area of chattisgarh, and is made using the lost wax process called cire perdue in the west. This work is called gadwakam in the local language. It is practised by tribals. Characterised by figures with long arms and legs, gadwakam is a complex process. A clay model is first set up. Then a wax lining is placed on this. The artist makes his sculpture on the wax. Another coating of clay with an opening at the bottom is laid over the wax. When the outer shell is dry and hard, a fire is lit around it so that the wax melts and flows out through it. Into this empty space is poured the molten metal. The outer layer is removed after it has cooled down. The resulting inner sculpture is finished, smoothed and polished. Size L 17,8cm x W 10,2 x H 20,3.

    Kashmir namda long rug: flowers and vines.

    A bright rug lends warmth, beauty and softness to any room, and a namda rug gives an exotic look to a living space with its jewel-like colours and simple patterns. Geometric motifs are repeated to make this lovely rug an example of simple beauty. Kashmir has a historic connection with Persia and central Asia, and a lot of its art bears these influences. These rugs are called namda and are made of rough wool and felt. They are a typical feature of Kashmir, used in every home to keep the warmth underfoot. The art of namda came to India from central Asia and stayed on. Kashmiri craftsmen later started their own embroidery on it, in rich designs and colours. Namda rugs are typically embroidered with a hook, in chain stitch, with floral and geometrical motifs. The wool used retains much of its natural oils and looks creamish/beige. This is not to be mistaken for dust - it is a natural colour. In case of spills, spot cleaning with a carpet cleaner is easy to carry out. These are great for a long passage, and make a lovely Christmas gift - full of handmade warmth. Size L 163cm x W 56cm.

    Whispering silks – mulberry stoles: hibiscus indigo

    Block printed silks from the sands of Rajasthan. Made by dying with blocks, by traditional block printers. The art of making natural dyes is one of the oldest known arts. Vegetable dyes have developed into a skilled art form in India, used for colouring fabric from ancient times. The blocks are hand-carved, made by skilled artisans who have learnt their craft over the years, from generation to generation. Good quality teakwood is used to make these blocks, ranging from a couple of inches to a foot in size. Printing uses several stamps with blocks of colour, then drying, then re-stamping with a different colour. A single piece or stole can take 3 days to make. Colours are got from local material - henna gives green, rhubarb gives brown, alizarin gives red etc. These are all made using natural dyes. They make beautiful gifts - each piece is exclusively handmade and sun dried. Variations in tone, designs and colour add to their uniqueness. No two pieces are exactly alike, despite having the same design and colour. Dry clean only. The borders and flowers of this indigo stole are touched with subtle gold. Size L 213,4cm x W 55,8cm.

    Kantha stoles silk: patchwork stories.

    Kantha originated in east India, in the states of Bengal, Bihar, and Orissa. Kantha is a simple running stitch, sewn by hand over the entire length of fabric. Rural women from economically weaker sections would stitch up old sarees to make quilts which they could use in winters. Over time, the kantha has gained a loyal following, and has evolved to include highly sophisticated designs and motifs. The density and the direction of the running stitches over layers of soft fabrics give it a toned, rippled effect. Now kantha includes entire sarees, stoles, shawls and even bedspreads. The designs include geometrical, human and floral motifs. Our stoles are composed of patches from many different fabrics, and then sewn over with kantha by hand. Both the technique (running stich) and the product are referred to as kantha. The different patches appear to give the stole a variegated look. These are reversible, two sided. They can be worn on either side. The lower side has mostly plain fabric, while the upper side is full of colour and vibrancy. Dry clean or hand wash only. Size L 203,2cm x W 45,7cm.
