Kutnu Silk Pillow with Embroidery - Grey Flower of Life
The flower of life is a geometric shape made of 19 overlapping circles. It is a form of sacred geometry depicting space and time since ancient time. It is believed that it represents the creation of life and carries its secret.
The front side of the pillow is made of kutnu. Kutnu is a woven textile with a shiny surface and colourful vertical stripes, made with silk warps (lengthwise yarns) and cotton wefts (crosswise yarns) and woven in the hand looms. In Turkey, the art of weaving kutnu is only practised in Gaziantep and is the early example of the art of textile printing.
