This beautiful, unusual shawl was made from vintage cotton chiffon sari. This fabric is a lightweight cotton chiffon. I've never seen cotton chiffon before, but here it is! A thick, embroidered, beaded, and sequined border runs along both short edges. Several stripes run diagonally across the scarf. All designs are made with metallic gold embroidery, multicolored sequins, and tiny beads.
This scarf is 42 inches long by 20 inches wide.
Hand wash this scarf in cool water. Hang to dry. Medium red beaded scarf.
I purchase saris from a single mother in Delhi, who runs her own business selling vintage and antique fabrics. She acquires these saris from women during trips to remote villages throughout India. In this way, she provides a much-needed income to these villages and to herself and her son. It's very cool being a part of this network!
This is a vintage sari and may have signs of wear such as small, light stains or tiny holes. I do my very best to insure that each piece is as close to perfect as possible, but please remember that they came from saris that have been worn and loved by one or more women. If there is something that is unacceptable to you, that I missed, I will gladly take the piece back.
