Superb Wedding Shawl from Swat Valley
Hand-spun cotton, handwoven un-dyed khaddar cotton base, hand-embroidered with silk floss.
Superbly execute stitches that make it look like the silk has been pasted on to the base cloth.
Minor color run, a few usage related stains and general discoloration.
Old textiles from the Swat valley are very rare to come by.
Estimate to be from the 1920s - 1950s
