Nonsuch in Cala
Effortlessly uplifting, Cala sings with traditionally feminine colours, including delicate lilacs, pinks and mauves. A Blue Sky background – hand-painted on a silk-linen mix – further adds to the sense of grace.

Each painted panel begins its life as a length of raw silk which we size with a natural adhesive so that it receives paint without bleeding. We often brush the silk with iridescent pearl washes to add further lustre before backing with traditional rice paper. This forms the extraordinary canvas on which our artists work their magic.
Our artists are masters of traditional Chinese painting and work in teams to meticulously plan out each room before slowly building up the many layers of detail and colour. To achieve intensity and shade, the artist will blend hues, often using two brushes simultaneously.
