This beautiful silk shawl has two very intricate techniques. The center section is done using the fine shibori technique. The patterning is made by the stitching and folding the cloth before it's dyed. Each end has 24" section of hand painted design using the ancient Kalamkari technique. Colors: center section is gradations of violet blue and off white. The painted birds and plants colors are brick, wheat, blue grey, olive and black. Because it's all hand done expect variations. This piece is a work of art. This would also be beautiful as a wall hanging or in a window. We purchased this directly from the artist while in India last January. 100% silk.
