Enter your home and walk into your own private party every day! This embroidered Wall Hanging design reminds us of one of Joan Miro’s basic forms – Los Peces de Colores (The Colorful Fish). At the same time, it evokes elements of the night sky as well. Catalan artist Joan Miro had a surreal, free-spirited (or unrestrained) vision of art, eschewing conventional methods, and blazing his own path in brilliant colour and wild shapes across the canvas. Miro Wall Hangings capture that same vibrant spirit in spirals of hand-stitched Kashmiri wool, coming fair trade from India. Enjoy slight imperfections as this wall art is hand-made and no two pieces are exactly alike.
For more than 6 centuries, Kashmiri artisans have created this lovely chain stitch embroidery from soft Kashmiri wool thread. The chain stitch is a finer form of crewelwork. Kashmiri artisans work together in a cottage industry, handcrafting the entire piece 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.
Indulge yourself and pair this wonderful Wall Hanging with some Miro inspired Contemporary Throw Pillows. Let the combination of the wall hanging and pillows add even more richness and color to your home!
