Shawl from India

This is another shawl from India. This picture does not give a clear idea at all of what it looks like. The gold in this shawl is like blending filament: very shiny. It's not something you can wear and remain inconspicuous.

My former boss, who brought it from India for me, had a bet on with himself as to whether I would wear it. I did, so he decided he needed to get something gaudier! Stay tuned!

This is beautiful - though I could never wear it myself. I really like Indian textiles - I am astounded a the breadth of styles and colours of embroidery they have. interesting to see what you'll get next time....
