The Queen of Textiles

When looking at elegant Indian Silks, I feel almost mesmerized and enchanted by the shimmering jewel tones.  As we know, silk has the reputation of luxury and the bright colors woven throughout the piece tell its story. It is almost impossible to glance at a piece of silk just once, for you may miss the mysterious “between” tones that create the most exciting, unexpected result.

From the moment you lay eyes on one of these extravagant silks, you begin the journey of past and present. In India multiple variations of these extraordinary silks are worn on a daily basis and play a large role in the sacred ceremonies and occasions of the culture.

With so much beauty and elegance, it’s no wonder silk is called the Queen of textiles.

Can you imagine how this gorgeous influence would transform your walls?
