One of the highlights of the embroidery-craftmanships ... a ceremonial luxury wall hanging, so called Haiti, Morocco, mid 1800's Golden embroidery on luxury velvet & leather! For an identical example please see the highlight of the Indianapolis Museum's famous textile collection .... http://collection.imamuseum.org/artwork/79592/ ... Conserved on a matching fine, claret velvet. "Only the wealthiest families in Morocco owned gold-embroidered wall hangings of this type. This luxurious textile is composed of seven panels of alternating crimson red and emerald green velvet fabrics, which were elaborately embroidered with metallic threads. This complicated gold-thread embroidery technique required custom-made leather templates precisely cut to create the intricate filigree pattern. Professional male embroiderers then used gold threads to cover only the visible side of the leather templates, thus ensuring that none of the precious metallic thread was wasted. These textiles were displayed on special occasions, such as the seven-day celebration following a marriage ceremony, when they were hung behind the bride and the groom. The principal motif, the arch—an architectural element mostly seen in mosques—creates a splendid interlaced setting." "In 2003, the ima loaned this artwork to the National Museum of African Art as part of an exhibit entitled "The Fabric of Moroccan Art," which was sponsored by Mohammed vi, king of Morocco. Of the dozens of textiles displayed, this one was lauded as "One of the most important pieces in the exhibition--and in the IMA's entire textile collection."
