OH DEER.......................OH DEAR..................
I don't buy much for our house anymore. Since our downsize we just don't have that much room and besides I gave away so much when we moved that I NEVER want to have to do that again.
But this particular item....I could not resist. It is a handmade deer head using old saris from India. Pieces of straw are intertwined with beads and fabric. His nose is a little to square...but I like things that are not so perfect. I added the camel bells and the little bird just for decoration.
Try not to notice the little spackle patch on the wall, as I move things around I try to patch all the nail holes from previous endeavors. I just have not had time to paint them.
I collect Kantha cloths from India..in fact it is probably the only thing I collect.
You can use them in so many ways....
as door coverings...
our entry doors into the rooms in this house are all set back a ways so I can use these Kanthas as curtains so I don't have to close doors for privacy. I like the little boho vibe it adds to our home.
This is looking into the kitchen...there is actually no door here so I hung a Kantha.
You can also use them to cover ottomans or as throws and coverlets on beds and sofas. Since they are so very colorful you can change the feel of a room so easily without spending a ton of money.
The above photo is not a Kantha but it is a textile probably from Africa or India. I purchased it from a company called THE SILK ROAD. It has been all over our house as a curtain, table cover, sofa throw and now it is a piece of art hanging on the wall. As I said these wonderful textiles are so versatile they are truly a wonderful investment.
Stay well dear friends.
