Night in The Town - Cotton Wall Hanging
The spectacular wall hanging pays a rich tribute to the Gujarati patchwork traditions. Patchwork, a sibling of the rich handcraft and art of the Indian subcontinent, is also known as piecing, involves joining together pieces of fabric into a larger design. Patches of various shapes and colours lead to the making of a larger design. Patterns are generally repeated. Patchwork, one of the primary construction techniques of quilting, is often combined with appliqu. Basic geometric shapes are usually used in the making of most of the patch work items which need precise joining so that it lies without puckers. Patch work in India is mainly popular in Gujarat and Rajasthan. Various coloured and patterned fabrics of different shapes and sizes are together on a plain background. An important feature characterizing Indian patchwork is that the stitches of the patches are not hidden but are done with jazzy shades which get highlighted, adding a more artistic appeal. Gujarati patchwork items are the most well known ones. Highly ornamented with motifs, dramatic use of colours, the magical spell of patch work items lies in the contors of each individual. Glaring motifs of trees, birds and animals in bold colors can be seen in each patchwork item - shaped patches sewn unto cotton cloth.
