Home decorating with an Asian theme is beautiful and should fill you with pride. The colors are intense, designs are a mix of folk and primitive with wool and cotton tribal art, and the many minority people costumes Asian textiles are also Indian Silk intricate, and beautiful or the dramatic designs created in China using Oriental silk. I enjoy the diversity of the people. An Asian wall hanging can act as a tremendous centerpiece of a room. Take a collage of smaller Asian textiles with a frame can make a similar statement.

Chasing that elusive textile. Man had the four textiles in the middle of nowhere but wanted an arm and leg for (Ii121-). Heard it was from Bikaner ran across Rajasthan, nope and even their beautiful textiles of lore weren't there but the town expert thought Barmer. We go to Barmer. Barmer is on south of Rajasthan, Bikaner north. Nothing. But we pick up some of the most beautiful dress fronts I had seen in India. But nothing. Rie is such a little trooper. My leg was killing me, I had sores all over it from the heat. I had jerry rigged bandages around the sores to off set the pressure when I stepped down but now these places were in blister and I needed a days rest. Rie set out with money in hand, and bought those 4 pieces returning 2 days later. Later at the Calico Museum in Ahmadabad talking to the curator, he had 2+ pieces badly damaged and never seen 4 like mine. Lucky to have a strong travel partner.
