Parsi Gara Hand-Embroidered Matsya White & Black Beads Cushion Cover

About Me: Gara is a kind of embroidery, originally done on saris and primarily comprising the Khakha stitch (also called the Forbidden knot), the French knot and long to short stitches. The work is extremely precise and fine with the stitches done very close to each other. It is one of the finest forms of embroidery found in craft forms today and the finesse of the old gara work was due to the 'bal' twisting of the thread. The same twisting is done now too, but the threads incorporated are much thicker.

The Story: Gara embroidery influenced by Persian styled Motifs of fruit, flowers and birds. Gara embroidery, originally considered to be Parsi family heirlooms, became rare collectors items because of their intricate work and beauty. The story of the Gara is one punctuated by as many influences as the motifs it showcases. Parsi embroidery incorporates motifs that have deep meanings. The reverence of the Parsis towards nature is evident in their embroidery work. The fleeing Parsis brought Persian symbols like the cypress tree, chakla chakli or contradictory birds, represented with delicacy. A tree called the divine fungus is used as a symbol of longevity and immortality. Lotus and peacock brings the fragrance of the Indian soil in which Parsi culture blossomed. The British Raj flavor incorporated floral baskets, the Chinese pheria stitched in vignettes of Chinese court life, beautiful gardens and flowers such as peony, rose, and chrysanthemum. Some or all these motifs fill up a typical gara or jhablawith an overriding feel of harmony, richness, grandeur and delicacy.
