BURMESE KALAGA COLLECTION


The crafting of Kalagas in Burma is an ancient tradition.  Originally made for wall decor in the Mandalay Court, they were rapidly adopted to use in homes.  The process starts with cotton fabric design cutouts that are then decorated with handmade sequins and couched colored threads.  These pieces are then attached to the background fabric and stuffed with cotton.  Next the background is filled in with more sequins and swirled threads.  Hand made glass beads are attached by more threads.

Elephants are the most popular design in Kalagas, representing Wisdom , Strength, Regal Character and Buddhism

The smaller pieces are suited to either framing or pillows.  The larger pieces are best for wall hangings.  We have framed them in many ways including using a mat of mirror which accentuates the gold glitter element of these pieces.  The framing process can be very creative, enhancing the end result.  Enjoy!
