Artisans Rajnandinee and Srabonti start with hand-woven Bengali tussar silk to craft their stunning shawls. The ecru fabric is then decorated using time-honored methods of hand block printing. Here, a repetitive stylized floral motif in crimson fills the body of the shawl, complemented by borders of black and red. Delicate knotted fringe completes the wrap.
