A trip to India is a treasure trove of hidden finds, exotic art and unique discoveries. Our buyer, Mary, returned from her travels to the Empire of the Soul with incredible stories, stunning photos and a selection of artisan-crafted finds that delighted our senses. Our favorite picks? A contemporary take on the classic Macramé Wall Hanging, a Macramé Dream Catcher and a Gray and White Woven Wall Hanging.
Knot Your Mom’s Macramé
Intricately knotted by Indian artisans who have perfected this ancient craft, our 100% cotton Macramé Wall Hanging brings soft texture to any space. It boasts a chic botanical pattern you’ll adore anywhere in your home. For a magical look, hang our Macramé Dream Catcher in a romantic bedroom. Each piece begins with a round metal frame that is skillfully covered with knotted lengths of non-dyed cotton.
It Weaves a Tale
Not quite macramé but a compelling visual statement on its own, our Gray and White Woven Wall Hanging captures a contemporary feel with vibrant color accents, fearless use of texture and mismatched patterns. It brings any space to life, from the most minimal gallery-like rooms to maximalist spaces. The use of metallic thread brings this ancient art directly to the 21st century.
In an artist’s enclave tucked away in India, skilled artisans painstakingly weave each piece by hand. Crafted on looms that haven’t changed in centuries, each finished work has slightly different qualities owing to the natural changes that occur in handmade processes.
The result is a masterpiece of imagination, craftsmanship and technique. And its history offers you a conversation starter for when guests inevitably ask where you found it.
