Naturally Dyed Bengal Weave Shawl - Silk - Wild Flower

$139.95

This exquisite hand-crafted shawl celebrates the skills of the Bengali Artisans who created it; from the complexity of naturally dyed silk yarns to the precise weaving. Handwoven is so much more than simply beautiful cloth - it is an idea of cultural self-sufficiency with deep roots in the Indian identity.

Silk gives this shawl a subtle lustre and beauty. It is slightly weighted, feeling luxurious to touch. These threads dyed with marigold, madder and indigo bring an understated elegance to the piece.
