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 worldâ€™s largest ecological cushion.
The 25-feet-tall textile masterpiece represents the â€˜Fabrics and Embroideries of Indiaâ€™ created by Limca record holder and interior lifestyle designer Kanika Bawa.

The gigantic installation titled â€˜CushionKariâ€™ is based on a unique design concept of harmony in nature and the congruence of man and the woman inspired by DaVinciâ€™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.
