gorgeous, soft and sheer purple silk shawl with gold embroidered floral and paisley designs.

This stunning wrap was created from antique bridal sari. The edges have embroidered borders with gold metallic thread and sequins. Light gold deigns with sequins are scattered across the rest of the scarf.

This shawl is 50 inches by 40 inches. This is a lush, generous cut that will look luxurious on. The embroidered and sequined edges give the shawl a nice drape.

The fabric is in excellent shape.

This embroidery is done with zari thread, which is a metallic, wound thread. Traditionally, the threads were gold, silver, and other precious metals. Zari means "beautiful" in Swahili. That's you in this shawl!

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.
