Recently-made Orissa Tribal Shawl

From Koraput / Kotpad district

Hand loomed coarse hardy cotton.

Absolutely gorgeous sober & elegant.

This is the preferred clothing of Sonia Gandhi - the ex-leader of the Congress Party and can be seen in most of her public appearances.

The tribe is small, the production is very limited and it is not possible to walk into a store and find these textiles. These can be acquired only in state or NGO sponsored exhibitions when the tribes people come out to sell a batch that has been produced over the previous few months. The weaves are sold in the metro cities 2-3 times a year direct to the handloom-loving elite of India.

This is not old - made post 2000.

Acquired  to help out the weavers. 

86 x 244cm [Long shawl]
