Hand embroidered wool and silk scarf S_177
You may think this textile looks like it has been woven, but you would be wrong! The intricate silk patterns are totally hand embroidered over a hand woven wool base.
Tribal ladies in western Gujarat, India, are using their traditional embroidery stitches - in this case, Suf embroidery - and applying them to new forms. So this magnificent scarf is a blend of timeless traditions and contemporary styling.
This heirloom quality piece is beyond fashion: it will never go out of date.
It measures 31 x 168cm and is a Fair Trade product.
