Unraveling the Story: Our Zardosi Wall Art

Zardosi is an intricate Persian embroidery technique that dates back to the Mughal Empire under the patronage Emperor Akbar. Traditionally done in gold bullion wire (Zardosi is a Persian word that means sewing with gold), this detailed needlework was once used by Persian royalty to embellish their garments and accessories. Due to industrialization and loss of royal patronage, this unique and extremely detailed technique is now practiced by only a handful of artisans—a dying art we’d like to keep alive.

Zardosi Method 

The Zardosi embroidery process begins with the artisan sitting (usually cross-legged) around the wooden framework with their tools. These tools include curved hooks, needles, gold or silver wire, and whatever style beads or sequins they choose. The design is then traced onto the fabric and stretched over a wooden frame—the intricate embroidery then begins.

Our Collection

Unraveling the Story: Our Zardosi Wall Art | Wisteria

Our Zardosi Isaiah Crown Wall Art  is fit for a king and will deliver a spiritual element to a wall space. Profiled in a gold wood frame, this ornate crown features delicate, hand-sewn beads and is outlined with the verse from Isaiah 28:5, “In that day the Lord Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people.”

Zardosi Cross Wall Art | Wisteria

Our Zardosi Cross Wall Art fits with holiday or everyday decor. Featuring an ornate crown atop a cross, this intricately detailed piece delivers the message from Isaiah 40:29–31, “He gives his power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength . . .”

Zardosi Psalms Crown Wall Art | Wisteria

Last but not least, our Zardosi Psalms Crown Wall Art  features an ornate crown on a bed of laurel leaves above the verse from Psalms 149:4, “For the Lord takes delight in his people he crowns the humble victory.” This beautiful piece is embroidered on stretched canvas over a wood frame.

We can’t imagine how a wonderfully unique and traditional technique has become almost obsolete, and though it’s not much, we hope these pieces will help keep this dying art alive.

How-to: Style our Elegant Étagère

When it comes to styling an étagère (or anything for that matter) there are no rules, only suggestions. However, there are a few style tips that we’d like to share on how to style our Elegant Étagère. Elegant Etagere Wisteria

Keep it Simple

First things first—when styling an étagère, keep it light and airy. Too many visuals or bulky objects can muddle its presence in a space, taking away from the aesthetic value.

The Right Scheme

Use colors and patterns that will complement each other. The neutral tone and texture of our Roman Bowl or Lil’ Elephant Statue visually complements the stark white hue and smoothness of our Beijing Vase Collection. It’s important when using neutrals to add a few pieces of color to make the space pop. Incorporating our Gilt Branch Sculpture is a great piece to highlight the hand-applied gold leaf finish of our étagère.

Layering is Everything

When deciding on what to showcase with your étagère, it’s important to keep in mind how each piece will fit. Layering objects with various heights throughout the series of stages is key. Whether it’s layering our Small French Paintings alongside our Blue and White Pottery or using a stack of books as a riser, varying heights (with the right pieces) caters to a very curated look.

One definition of style is: a distinctive appearance, typically determined by the principles according to which something is designed. An in-house design, we’d say this sums up our take on étagère.

The Beauty of Craftsmanship

Appreciating beauty is something we here at Wisteria pride ourselves on—especially in the craftsmanship of our products.

Our Moorish Chest is the epitome of beautiful craftsmanship. A design brought from North Africa to the Indian subcontinent by 16th-century Mughal princes, this chest is adorned with thousands of pieces of camel bone.

Handmade, each piece of bone is intricately cut and inlaid by hand on a hand-carved mango wood frame. A simple design with a striking pattern is the result of many hours of craftsmanship. The meticulous process of crafting this chest—down to the slightest detail—reminds us that handcrafting furniture (or anything for that matter) may be antiquated, but it’s not a lost art.

Bone In-Lay

This chest is a great way to infuse handcrafted, textured pieces into your décor. Make modern exotic by blending contemporary accents alongside this worldly piece. (Hint: Our Lucent Accent Chair and Bullet Glass Table Lamp will help complete the look!)
