Nimbe Kamanu 16x16 Cushion Cover
Green has always symbolized the colour of growth, of renewal, rebirth. This restores depleted energy. The lush greenery and the breezy weather, alongside the meandering waterfalls appear as the pinnacle of beauty in the monsoon season. In these rain drenched forests of the ghats the green parrot, one of the most intelligent and vibrant bird finds its home. The floors of the forest laden with discarded black, brown and red leaves of the harsh summers, moistened now and ready to be a part of the earth once again paints a picture of hope.
It is this tapestry that we capture into our collection, the "Nimbe"- meaning the lime in Kannada. The Nimbe fruit takes birth in a bush laden with rich green waxy leaves, starts its journey as a deep green fruit, grows bigger, transitioning through all the hues of green into the final yellow lime, all through building its tart-juices within. The collection emphasizes the colour green in all its hues, the yellow afternoon, lime lemon, parrot green, lush green forest - all the colours of growth, juxtaposed with black and brown the colour of discard that has a promise of regeneration.
This thing of beauty involves patchwork done to perfection, a design concept in the form of arches, each arch flowing along its circumference ever so smoothly. Note that the Khunn fabric has an extra warp that forms the design which makes it very delicate. It is the ingeniousness of the designer to make this product functional and durable, and how? By creating an extra topstitch as a technique which adds itself also as a beautiful design element. After the topstitch is done, they are brought together panel by panel in perfect balance. This is a labour intensive and elaborate process which needs very skilled Kaarigars to execute such perfection. Lining for front and back. Back is a plain coordinated fabric with zipper fastener.
