Each of these Rabari shawls has been made with such love and attention. These are from a tribe in Gujarat, India where the most exuberant and beautiful embroidery comes from.
The shawls are 100% wool apart from the decoration. The embroidery is primarily cotton and wool and the mirror work is exceptionally dense and beautiful. They are toasty warm and truly fetching.
The wool is dyed once and then tie dyed again to make the all over design.
This item is probably 30 or 40 years old, at least. It is in excellent condition. This one has a sweet detail. A tiny little patch of messy yellow embroidery where a young girl practiced on it. It can be easily removed but I haven't because I think it is very sweet.
These are great shawls for cool weather or striking as a wall hanging or throw.
