Art Nouveau was a movement that swept through the decorative arts, as well as architecture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Art Nouveau was a movement about modernizing design, seeking to escape the eclectic historical styles that had previously been popular. Artists drew inspiration from both organic and geometric forms, creating elegant designs that united flowing, natural forms with more angular contours. Hand-embroidered Art Nouveau Wall Hanging is a great example of the style. Vibrant colors and intricate design repeated down its’ length creating a calm but beautiful sense of space and order.
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. Enjoy slight imperfections as this wall art is hand-made and no two pieces are exactly alike. No child labor used and the artist inspired wall hangings or decorative area rugs are made by highly skilled artisans making a living wage.
