I am a patron of the decorative arts- woven silk princely textiles are my favorite genre of the decorative arts. I have traveled to various places in the world to look at, study and research about fine princely textiles. I have cultivated my aesthetic over the years, visiting palaces and aristocratic residences of Europe and North America and been most thankful to museums for showing me the most fabulous princely textiles in their collections. My heritage of being raised in a former Indian princely family has undoubtedly given me an appreciation for culture and the decorative arts, in particular. My aim with this blog is to connect with textile artists all around the world who are interested in princely textiles and want to explore weaving complex structures on draw looms.
This blog is meant to be informational and given the nature & inherent constraints of labor (depending on very skilled weavers) , loom setup (drawlooms), precious metals (silver/gold yarn making), silk (hand spun), and intellectual effort (to plan projects), I am unable to do projects as freely & post instructions for home DIY. An organized setup is crucial to such a craft! I will be putting up opportunities for collaboration. Welcome to my blog !
