World’s largest cushion to be showcased at Heimtextil India

Messe Frankfurt Trade Fairs India is set to create the world’s largest cushion at Heimtextil India to be held at Pragati Maiden in New Delhi from June 20. At 20 feet tall, this textile masterpiece, representing the ‘Fabrics and Embroideries of India’ is expected to create a record for the largest cushion in the world.

The organiser has partnered with India’s Limca record holder Ms Kanika Bawa to create this gigantic installation titled ‘Cushion Kari’ which will  be curated with fabrics from India’s largest and the most renowned home furnishing brand D’decor. Raj Manek, executive director and board member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holding Ltd said: “India is recognized for its exquisite home textiles and furnishing fabrics globally and Heimtextil India – with its mix of brands, design trends and home fashion innovations, best represents this on a single platform.

The Cushion Kari 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. Having previously entered the Limca book of world record through her art installations during the Make in India week for the Kathakali Chair and the Surya Namaskar Art Yoga – Bawa has now tried to encompass this concept of harmony in nature through the five elements found in Vedas – Bhumi (Earth), (Jal) water, (Agni) fire, (Vayu) air and (Aakash) space through her design.

Ajay Arora, managing director, D ‘décor said: “Heimtextil India is an important effort by Messe Frankfurt to create a trade show which can showcase India’s capabilities in home textiles and we are proud to partner with this trade fair brand again.

Altogether 180 companies from India, Bangladesh, China, Korea, Nepal and Thailand will be exhibiting at this three-day home fashion fair.
