Leah Singh continues the use of metallic yarn that we saw elsewhere at NYNOW. To pun it mildly, metallic yarn is the continuing thread in this NYNOW show for rugs.
We also saw a lot of effort to use traditional techniques in contemporary design. India itself is one of the most textile technique rich countries in the world.
From her website: Leah Singh features a collection of handcrafted textiles that mix traditional Indian craft techniques with unexpected color combinations, and modern, geometric forms. Designer and founder Leah Singh works directly with artisans in villages across India using embroidery, weaving, and printing techniques that are native to the region. Her philosophy is to rejuvenate these age-old, traditional crafts by transforming them into modern objects.
