A shawl with a majestic presence - that will make for the perfect wall hanging.

Superb palette. Superb workmanship. Superbly thought out.

Note the diagonal matrix within which the flowers have been embroidered - the lines of this matrix are themselves designed with character

Each of the flowers is also a highly developed motif - with a pattern at the centre, a pattern of outward-radiating petals and dividing lines in between each quadrant.

Amazing attention to detail that we only see in Swat valley pieces.

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
