Green Meadow Marble Throw
This Hand Loomed Cotton Marble Throw is a must-have home accent. From its 12th century Japanese 'suminagashi' roots to its 15th century Central Asia, and 17th century Middle East and European variations, marbling is a timeless art form. This one-of-a-kind throw is crafted with fine Indian cotton from Fair Trade-certified artisans in Rajasthan - renowned for its maharajas, forts, and palaces. Not a detail was spared in creating this 72”x48” beauty with colors and designs that can't be ignored.
The earliest known examples of marbling date back to Japan in the 12th century, where a technique known as suminagashi, meaning “floating ink” was used to create papers. Similar methods also arose in central Asia in the 15th century. Finally, these methods spread from the middle east to Europe in the 17th century, where various countries each made their own adjustments and created signature patterns.
Marbling is no longer limited to these traditional applications. Today, it is used to create artwork, fine papers, and fabric designs. Part of the beauty of marbling is that no two finished pieces are exactly alike.
