India’s patterns

India is a country of different colors. I was impressed to find patterns everywhere, in architecture, decor, outfits… Very often in a poor street with a dirty road and falling apart buildings I would see a beautiful flower walking by, this would be a woman, wearing an elegant colorful sari. I would be charmed by this spec of joy and follow her till the last second.

I love patterns. I can say with confidence that I did not see as many patterns anywhere else in the world as in India. I have put together a little collection for you.Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 7.03.55 PMScreen Shot 2015-08-17 at 6.37.18 PM

We went to the silk producing area of Varanasi. We saw the way it was made, very often by hand on an old textile machine. Could take from a day to a few weeks to make one silk artwork.
