Grande Hardcover Journal – Sacred Tibetan Textiles: Padma
1 in stock
The Scared Tibetan Textiles are fabrics that come straight from the Kasim Silk Emporium and are authentic expression of their cultural heritage. For centuries in Varanasi, the Kasim family has been practicing the art of handweaving silks to create cloth and vestments for sacred rituals. These beautiful designs are created for Buddhist monasteries and the Dalai Lama. The weavers have designed the path to enlightenment, both in the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism represented by the pattern and in the colours selected. The brocade fabrics are expression of faith, artistic traditions and spirituality. With the Sacred Tibetan Textiles series, we pay homage to the rich heritage of Indian silk handweaving and to the craftspeople who continue this art form today. The Grande format makes for a great desk journal, large sketch book or a guest book.
