An elephant stool created from various types of fabric, the back and the body is made from an antique silk brocade sari, worn by Indian noble families.
The face is covered with European velvet and decorated with white metal parts. The stool is further embellished with 4 large and 8 small pieces of free form fresh water Pearls and 14 pieces of Peridot beads weighing a total of 21 carats.
In the past, saris were hand woven of silk or cotton. Only the rich could afford the finely woven ones that, according to folklore, could be passed through a ring.
The poor wore coarsely woven cotton saris. The expensive saris had elaborate geometric, floral, or brocades crated on the loom, as part of the fabric. The pattern which are woven with gold or silver thread is called “Zari” work. It is created by winding a flattened metallic strip (gold or silver) on a core yarn, usually of pure silk, cotton, etc.
