A large and impressive early 20th century hand embroidered wool wedding shawl from the Sind province in southeastern Pakistan. The manufacture of these wedding shawls can take as much as six months to complete, a protracted amount of time to invest in something that will only be worn one time at one wedding. After the wool has been spun it is woven on a backstop loom into two long panels which are later sewn into one. The natural black wool is resist dyed in madder red, turmeric and a small amount of indigo and then embroidered, brocaded and embellished with mirrored glass and fringe along both ends.
Dimensions: 114 inches long x 42 inches wide.
Condition notes: pristine.
