Kashmiri artisans work together in a cottage industry, handcrafting the complete Wall Hangings from the design, to the wool, to the beautiful chain-stitch embroidery, the finest in the world. No child labor used and the wall hangings are made by highly skilled artisans making a living wage. Enjoy slight imperfections as this wall art is hand-made and no two pieces are exactly alike.
Known best for his colourful expressionism, and pioneering work in abstract painting, Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was also a prominent art theorist. He explored deeply into the meaning behind art, likening colour to music (a parallel obvious to him; he had synesthesia), and art to prophecy, seeking after the numinous and spiritual, deeply subjective experiences that art can evoke. It is in this way that he most influenced the contemporary world of art.
Embroidered Wall Hangings, or tapestries, inspired by Kandinsky give depth and color to our homes. Enjoy Kandinsky wall hangings on your wall, or use as a small area rug. Pair this Kandinsky Jazz Tapestry with matching Contemporary Throw Pillows to add even more color and richness to your home!
