The Radiant Bind of Fabrics & Patterns
India is historically famous for its beautifully made fabrics such as silk, cotton, jute and khadi.

You can also use it as an accessory to decorate your walls & windows. Various patterns and motifs on the fabrics also play a vital role. Among this, Paisley is considered as the most popular pattern, as most of the themes are inspired by nature in the form of a flower, leaves, bird, and other animal prints with some detailed mandala motifs. All of these can be found in every Indian interior design. Each pattern and print symbolizes a deep religious and cultural meaning that adds richness in the decor of your home.
