I is for Indian handblock tapestries

I own quite a few Indian handblock tapestries that I've collected over the years.

These pictures are of only a few of them.

I am a visual minimalist, but for handblocked tapestries from India, I definitely make an exception!

Usually they are the only printed materials in a room, which makes for a lovely focal point, if you ask me.

I find their imperfections utterly charming, and appreciate the reminder that each piece is unique and that every motif was hand stamped.

I think they're art. Don't you?

Good I! And eye. :) They are really cool. And definitely art.
