Perfect for any season, this charming silk shawl is woven on a traditional loom and patterned using hand block printing techniques. Upon an ivory base, eye-catching geometric shapes in blue decorate the central panel, with two bands of abstract stars in the same shade adorning either end. Indian artisans Rajnandinee and Srabonti complete their design with a solid border in peridot green and neat fringe on both ends.
As is typical of genuine handloomed fabric, there are tiny slubs throughout. This occurs when a thread runs out, and the weaver extends it by twisting a new thread together with the old.
