'Tree of Knowledge' to promote Indian textiles during CG
Sep '10
The colourful and beautiful Chinar tree made up of hand-woven Indian textiles and fibres will form the backdrop for inaugural ceremony of Commonwealth Games to commence next month. The Chinar tree is made up of bamboo draped with around 25 panels of colourful silk fabrics woven by traditional artisans and sourced from remote areas of India.

Major panels of these silk fabrics are adorned with traditional kalamkari work done by the artists from Andhra Pradesh.

Presenting India's rich textile and traditional crafts in the 'Fabric of India Segment' during the inaugural event of CG, is the key objective to install bamboos draped in silk fabric as the ceremony is expected to be watched by masses around the globe which will help promoting Brand India and improving demand for country's products.

It's a 'Tree of Knowledge' of 110-foot height and 40-inches width fitted with a aerostat, which would flash images representing the part of 'Project M'. Kashmir is the region where Chinar has been found widely and is also symbolic to the state.

The exclusively woven colourful fabrics comprise ikkats from Andhra Pradesh with Kantha embroidery of West Bengal. Moreover, this tree will also be used as a centre-piece for the fashion show to be organized during Commonwealth games.
