NEW SKETCHBOOK 2011 - Trici
The Ikat Princes ©2011 by Trici Venola. Emin and Nurettin of Nurem Art Textiles in the Grand Bazaar. Specializing in Central Asian textiles, this is a place to drool over silk and velvet ikat (left) and hand-embroidered suzanis (right). Ikat is hand-loomed fabric made of threads tie-dyed before weaving. A suzani is a tablecloth or bedspread or tent decoration, embroidered on fabric. I've got them all over my walls.
