Kassena North African Kilim Wall Tapestry
I can't help myself from upgrading some of the vintage textiles I find on my travels even though they are beatiful as they are! BUT what is wrong with adding a little extra and a bit of cultural diversity?
More is more right!
I've trimmed this beautiful North African Kilim with a fabulously fluffy wool trim I found in Chiang Mai from the Yao Mien Tribe.
The black woven fabric tabs are up cycled from a hand loomed scaft from Laos.
At the base I've added a stunning glossy black feather trim I found at my favorite haberdashy market in Shanghai, China. The stall owner told me the trims and other feathers she sells are traditionally used in the costumes of the Beijing opera! How fabulous!
I've done some feather identification research and it seem although I cannot be sure that these are Turkish Vulture feathers. So there is one hell of a story behind this custom made piece of wall art!..
Can I keep it? She says about everything she creates 😜
