Lime Green and Lavender sofa throw, Indian ethnic hand woven sofa throw. Soft comfy throw. From Artikrti.
Be enchanted. Let your creative instincts take over: You can toss this vibrant creation onto your living room sofa as a throw OR drape it alongside your drapes or curtains for that distinctive touch of color. Or be real adventurous- drape it across your coffee table OR around your table lamp in the corner. Or give that barstool a feminine touch. Sit back and admire your artistic touch.
This hand & vegetable dyed and hand-woven cotton throw is from a tiny little town called Chettinad in the south of India. Checks and stripes and various hues of color are the mark of the Chettinad tradition of weaving, for generations.
For over a hundred years artisans and weavers have perfected this art of weaving exclusively for the Chettinad saree, where every piece woven in this tradition is a labor of love and takes nearly six months to finish.
This art is now used for contemporary renditions like this cotton throw for your living room.
And where does that exotic throw for your living room sofa get its color from: exotic vegetable dyes from things like turmeric, marigold flowers, onion skin and pomegranate rinds.
NOTE: Only the throw. Cushions are listed and sold separately.
This kind of hand woven ethnic piece is just the ONE piece you or your loved one will ever see. And given its exquisite work of art, like fine wine, time will only add to its allure. Imagine that. With good care, this could join the Etsy antique collection in another 30 years or so. A keepsake for sure.
A great gift for women who have that keen aesthetic eye for home décor. For the lady who seems to have it all. For the love of your life, your wife. Or your best friend, your sister, mom or aunt or grand mom. Surprise them truly, with this ethnic exclusive.
India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and his dedication to his craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan, in giving birth to his creation.
Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.
