Beautiful silk embroidered Phulkari Bagh Shawl from West Punjab
Superb small tight stitches that have a long life arranged in concentric diamonds
Beautiful colored Pachranga border with magenta and purple.
Unfortunately some of the color has run and resulted in minor localised staining. Some thread loss.
Hand woven maroon base cloth.
Estimated to be from the 1930s
This is one of the early phulkari bagh acquisitions that led me down the garden path and resulted in me falling in love with this beautiful category.
