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. Some of the older decoration is wool. These are often adorned in layers generation to generation, I imagine. They are toasty warm and truly fetching.
The wool is dyed once and then tie dyed again to make the all over design. It is unusual in that it has a few different colors of tie dye towards the center and not just the traditional red and white.
This item is probably 30 or 40 years old. It is in excellent condition. It is unusual in that it is a dark brownish red color while most are black or dark brown.
These are great shawls for cool weather or striking as a wall hanging or throw.
