A PASHMINA SHOULDER MANTLE

Description
This is a unique piece because it stands as a testament to the time in which it was stitched. In the 19th century there was a minor revolution in the traditional weaving of the Kani shawls. Instead of being woven as one piece, the shawls were woven in long strips and then connected together. This particular piece was woven into two and then connected together. It has prominent red colour paisley motifs in butedar design throughout the shawl, accompanied by smaller floral motifs, and an additional plain Khudrang pallavs.
