Story

The PARCHEESI textile has an interesting geometric layout inspired by the ancient Indian board game of Parcheesi, which was played by royalty and common folk alike. The two ends meld together at the centre to create an illusionistic check pattern in the centre. This piece is again created using old basic striped blocks that are manipulated to create depth with overlay. It takes about 8-10 hours to execute and has to be made by one craftsman only from start to finish given the complex nature of printing. This is a handmade product. Irregularities are a distinctive part of the design. Each textile is thus, unique with its own little glitches - love them and celebrate them as nuances of the craft.
