Inspiration Board

 

 

My inspiration board consists of most of the things by which the designing of brocade is driven from.

Brocade was the most famous textile in the period of Mughals.

The most common things visible in a brocade handloom are flora and fauna.Banarasi-saree.jpg[http://gaatha.com/banaras-weaving-history-and-process/]

And some other motifs are inspired from the geometrical figures.IMG_9014 2.JPG[self_clicked]

Most importantly gold and silver gives the brocade textiles rich and heavy look. The sheen of brocade is incomparable.IMG_9614 3.jpg[self_clicked]

 

Following is the color board:
