Beautiful BEAUTIFUL Swat Valley textile with silk floss embroidery.
Handspun cotton base.
The silk is so fine that it appears to be pasted onto the cotton.
The embroidery is similar to Phulkaris and Suzanis.
This is a fragment and not a complete piece.
Notwithstanding the defects this is a stunning piece of work and can be used to create a framed textile artwork using the 16+ flower motifs.
228cm x 41cm
