Thirma Bagh Phulkari
Maron Silk floss with green accents on White Base cloth.
From a Hindu family.
NOTES: The silk floss used in this piece is unbelievable!!
As the thickness of the silk thread used is extremely fine - it appears as though the silk has been pasted on to the base cloth!
The unnamed artists that created such a gorgeous textile using the finest of silk floss deserve awe and respect and their skill deserves worship!
If only they knew that several generations later, we sit here eulogising their work and wishing to kiss their hands in gratitude!
THREAD LOSS: Very minor spots of thread loss on the selvedge and one side (about 1-2cm)
STAINS: None seen on the front. Back stained.
HOLES / TEARS / REPAIRS: None seen
OTHER COMMENTS: The maroon used is not all the same shade. The changes are gradual and result in a vignette.
