At Heimtextil India and Ambiente India, an exhibition which is being held at Pragati Maidan from June 20-22, 2017, Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India created world’s largest ecological cushion.

The 25-feet-tall textile masterpiece represents the ‘Fabrics and Embroideries of India’ created by Limca record holder and interior lifestyle designer Kanika Bawa.

Earlier Bawa has worked on attempts to break two records on the ‘Make in India’ platform with the largest Kolhapuri Chappals (installations of 8 ft 6 inches and 10 ft 6 inches) and tallest Kathakali chair (10 ft 6 inches).

The gigantic installation titled ‘CushionKari’ is based on a unique design concept of harmony in nature and the congruence of man and the woman inspired by DaVinci’s famous portrait (Ardhanareshwar).

The materials used in the making of the cushion represent fabrics of the nation such as - khadi, brocade, mixed embroideries, aloe vera, tulsi prints, vegetable waste, blend of sustainable textiles such as yarn and fabric waste among others.

Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holding Ltd said that with this unique art installation, their aim is to draw attention to the ‘Fabrics of India’ and its strength in furnishings which is one of the largest export product segments in the country.

Curated with fabrics from home furnishing brand D’Décor, Ajay Arora, Managing Director, D ‘décor said that Heimtextil India is an important effort by Messe Frankfurt to create a trade show that can showcase India’s capabilities in home textiles.

The installation, a tribute to Indian capability, is meant to epitomise prowess, quality, vision and a capacity to overcome any challenge – all of which are an integral part of D’Decor’s ethos and DNA.

India is recognised for its exquisite home textiles and furnishing fabrics globally. Heimtextil India with its mix of brands, design trends and home fashion innovations, best represents this on a single platform.
