Hand embroidered silk shawl # 174
by Indian tribal
$370.00 / Sold Out
This very beautiful silk textile from West Bengal, India, is embroidered all over with swans in various moods: swooning swans, spooning swans, frolicking swans, sleeping swans and swimming swans amongst flowers and foliage. Totally hand embroidered using tiny stitches, it is a modern treasure of tribal art.
The silk was hand woven & coloured before embroidery. Many hours of delicate hand work have gone into creating this beautiful object. Measuring 234 x 105cm, it is large and beautiful enough to use as a wall hanging or sofa drape when not flung gloriously about the shoulders.
Only one in stock. Probably only one in the country.
