Here is my entry for this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge.
Dictionary meaning of Detail is: specific feature, attribute, characteristic or element of an item or fact.
Whether in Nature or man made items, to create details involves extra time, effort and craftmanship. I salute all artists, weavers and craftsmen today as they work on creating finer details in their hand made items.
Parsi Kor borders showcase exquisite embroidery. Highly priced or kept as rich heirloom pieces, these borders are done with a cross stitch. A variety of coloured threads in silk or cotton are used. The borders are then attached to sarees or wedding gifts like table linen.
Traditional Kashmiri designs are another example of detailed work. Men and women, both work as Karigars or weavers. Thread colours used here are white (safed) and turquoise (firozi). Common motifs used are: paisley, delicate chinar leaf, saffron, narcissus and lily flowers. Just as in Nature, twirling creepers and lines add delicate element.
In crochet and knitting the details of design and stitch add that extra element. The picot stitch can be used in the border or in the body pattern (as I am using here). Picot adds a bit of charm, especially when used in borders to create a pointed effect on the line.
if you want to produce something above the normal, just work on the DETAILS !
