Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Introducing a small collection of textiles from a culture that is literally being extinguished by war.
The silk embroidery of these textiles is as fine and delicate as their living conditions are harsh (from an outsiders point of view). But their geography is beautiful.
Sitting in a different world, far away from the creators of these textile arts, I can only make conjectures about their lives. And if the output of their lives – e.g. their textiles – is any measure my guess is that their lives are stunningly beautiful. For to produce such art, one needs inner happiness and inner peace.
I do hope that their culture will survive into the next century and beyond.
