Regal Tapestries

This is an exotic collection of 30 tapestries: hand-embroidered with gold, silver and silk threads, and with hundreds of gemstones shining between them, such as diamonds, emeralds, tourmalines, rubies, topazes and pearls. In total, these works bring together over 25,000 gems that exceed 75,000 carats.

Of different sizes and themes, these tapestries come from Asia. The largest of them, 275×185 cm, is from Rajasthan (India) and it contains 4,463 gemstones. The smallest one has 78 gems incorporated and measures 60×45 cm. Each tapestry is unique and one-of-a-kind, due to the manufacturing process, patient and anonymous, that reveals careful technical execution and outstanding preciousness, as well as imagination and sensitivity – merits to be added to the high material value of these works.
