Good Earth creates Silk Route collection of wallpapers for Nilaya
September 23, 2016: Nilaya, the luxury wall covering line from Asian Paints in India, is presenting a new selection of patterns - Silk Route, designed by the design house, Good Earth.
Silk Route takes on a visual adventure inspired by ancient trade routes to the East and the fabled places and cultures along the way. Three evocative themes - Charbagh, Palmyra and Xanadu and 17 designs, all carefully curated by Anita Lal, Pavitra Rajaram and Asha Madan of Good Earth, take one through Mughal gardens, balmy Mandalay groves, the floral paradise of the islands of the Indian Ocean and magical Chinoiserie scenes.
For Silk Route, Nilaya approached a specialist firm in UK with one of the two remaining surface print machines in the world. Their artisanal approach, particularly suited for the individual nuances of bespoke collections, also mirrors the earth friendly philosophies of both Nilaya and Good Earth.
Silk Route, thus, comes to life with natural dyes and in some cases, hand cut rollers have been used to transpose patterns onto natural feel paper which glint with subtle glimmers of gold and silver. The Silk Route collection will be available at Good Earth and Nilaya Asian Paints salons in Mumbai and New Delhi and across all Good Earth stores in India. The wallpapers will also be available at the web boutique and at the Asian Paints Signature stores in Mumbai & New Delhi.
