Textiles can be both the workhorses and the wonders of your home. From purely utilitarian bedspreads, pillow covers, and table cloths to the rich luxury of cashmere throws, satin runners, thick hand-knotted rugs, textiles add warmth, color, and style to any room.
India, Bali, China, South and Central America, as well as the Southwest, are some of the sources from which Sukhmani’s fiber furnishings come. If antique textiles could tell a story, you would learn they were the first coverings swaddling tender newborn babies from the Andes cold. Or, the yardage created a festive canopy over the heads of young lovers pledging their marriage vows. Other textiles are myth-telling wall hangings, sometimes painted, sometimes dyed, with images of deities, heroes and ordinary families.
Many textile arts, such as ikat, batik and applique, are quickly vanishing from today’s world. Hand spun, hand woven, home dyed and decorated textiles are almost a lost art. Sukhmani strives to present the best and most beautiful examples, to put them into your hands, for you to preserve and enjoy.
