Good Earth’s Samarqand Design Collection 2014-2015 takes inspiration from the designs and crafts that originated and developed in the fabled city of Samarqand which lies at the heart of the Silk Route. The collection comprises of an array of lamps and lanterns inspired by the souks of the Middle East, silver and gold ceramic plates and glasses with the leitmotif of pomegranates or ‘Fruit of Paradise’. Luxurious silk cushions in ikat, brocade, embroidery and print, velvet and chenille cushions for the bed, vessels and platters handmade in metal, vases in crystal, fragrant candles and frankincense from Dhofar evoke memories of the merchandise that travelled across the Silk Route.
