ornately embroidered red bridal shawl with gold beading and tiny brass bells.

this red and gold wrap was handmade from antique bridal sari in the traditional colors. gold embroidery runs along all four edges, and a thicker, more ornate border with sweet little brass bells runs along each short edge.

the ornate, heavy embroidery gives a nice weight to the edges, so the shawl swings and drapes beautifully as you move.

the shawl is 65 inches by 40 inches.

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 or lay flat to dry.

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.
