Museum Quality Shekhwati Shawl - probably the most interesting ever made
Has 6 different saathiyos drawn in a single shawl while most have 6 repetitions of the same pattern.
Could the excellent banjara work on borders be suggesting an ethnographic connection or skill-import-vide-marriage or is it just a simple case of one group trying their hand at a stitch usually used by Banjaras?
Amazing piece in very good condition
