The costumes are shaped like a giant fan that wraps up on itself then unfolds to reveal beautiful batik / hand painted silk similar to a peacocks tail and Chinese fan.
Designs reflect our African, South Asian and Caribbean Queen puppets featuring textiles practice, nature, and cultures from the respective regions. The costumes are hand-made and hand-painted onto hand woven Fairtrade Indian silk from Murshidabad in West Bengal.
