luxurious soft fern green pure silk shawl with ornate gold beading, embroidery, and sequins.
this silk wrap was created from antique bridal sari with heavy embroidery work, beading, and sequins. the fabric is a silk georgette, which is sheer like chiffon, but a bit thicker.
This shawl is 65 inches by 45 inches. The heavy embroidered and beaded edges give the shawl a nice drape.
The fabric is in excellent shape.
Hand wash this scarf in cool water. Hang to dry. Press on gentle heat under a cotton cloth, or steam.
I purchase saris from a single mother in Delhi, who runs her own business selling vintage and antique fabrics. She acquires these saris from women during trips to remote villages throughout India. In this way, she provides a much-needed income to these villages and to herself and her son. It's very cool being a part of this network!
This is a vintage sari and may have signs of wear such as small, light stains or tiny holes. I do my very best to insure that each piece is as close to perfect as possible, but please remember that they came from saris that have been worn and loved by one or more women. If there is something that is unacceptable to you, that I missed, I will gladly take the piece back.
DON'T WORRY! I take returns for ANY reason.
