It took me a while to get all my money together for this truly grand jewelry set, and let me tell you it's worth every penny! Shop owner was gracious and kind to me. Shipping was fast and very carefully organized. My treasures arrived in good order! I will be back for more. Love my jewelry!♥

We really enjoy this beautiful and unique lamp. We did make some modifications to the electric lighting, by adding a night light in the base. We were very pleased with the timely manner in which it was delivered and the care in packing.

About

Color is everything for the Old Silk Route textile collection

I have been privileged to have been able to share my appreciation for the richness and diversity of Indian, Pakistani, and Afghani textiles with many of my fellow Americans for almost thirty years.
It all began back in the early 1980's with the Ann Magee Collection of tapestries, which were Indian paintings mounted on silk sarees, all of which took place from my home in New Delhi, where my husband was a diplomat with the American Embassy. For back drops and a splash of color, I always had some vintage silk sarees as well as my tapestries when I showed at the High Point Furniture Market and so I started to bring in more related silk saree textiles, such as pillow covers, bedspreads, and even some wall hangings.
Then in 1990 when my daughter married a Pakistani and moved to Lahore, I had the opportunity to teach at the University of Peshawar for a few months where I became not only aware of the plight of the Afghan refugee but charmed by their tribal textiles and artifacts. With my first pay check, I promtly purchased a 1000 pair of Afghan hand knitted woolen socks from Save the Children and I was on my way.
