creations by lily
Artisans through Creations by Lily, a Tibetan organization, make handcrafted products and work to preserve distinctly Tibetan patterns and practices of art. Tibet is a region of China where Chinese and Indian cultures blend. Tibet has long been an area of political unrest, due its semi-autonomous nature. Weaving is a historically distinctive craft, and is of such renown that it was historically a fitting tribute to the emperor. The organization's works showcase one of the few preserved artisan skills of Imperial China.
The fun, colorful patterns and designs through Creative of the World showcase the potential of beauty and color in a time of conflict and fear of losing techniques passed down through generations.
