Silk Zari Floral Jewel Tapestry 3ftx5ft
This magnificent jewel tapestry has hundreds of tiny silk flower blossoms woven the background, each center a tiny jewel. These wall rugs today are of knotted silk, the pile made of the fine silk from mulberry worms raised in Kashmir expressly for these carpets. The resulting sheen and luster gives an interplay of infinite reflections. The density of knots has been refined to achieve suppleness unknown in the wool carpets of Persia. Jewel Carpet is a magnificent and exceptional art of Zardozi. This art thrived in Mughal era and received patronage of Kings and Royal families. Semi-precious stones, hundreds in numbers depending on the size and design, like Jade, Onyx, Tiger Eye, Quartz, Turquoise, Coral, Lapis, malachite, and moonstone are meticulously crafted and fixed in golden or silken threads to create an exquisite wall hanging or tapestry.
