578 Superb White & Pink Likhni Swat Valley Bagh Phulkari Textile Art handmade

Superfine embroidery on a Swat SHawl

 

Although this shawl has never been washed, the pink color has run even in dry conditions during the folded storage of the textile prior to wovensouls' acquisition.

 

The lustre of the pink is gorgeous and the finesse of the embroidery gives it a satin-like look.

 

Even after taking the color run into account, this piece is a fine example of Swatti work!

 

Estimated to be from the early 1900s
