Description

A beautiful shawl originating from the Toda tribe in southern part of India. A traditional drape worn by men and women embroidered on a cream soft cotton fabric with red and black linear motifs. And with backing of same soft cotton. Photo 4 and 5 shows the backside of the shawl.

Predominantly colors are off white, italian red, blue and black. The back side is as lovely as the front as regards the embroidery and otherwise just plain off white. The stitches are done very closely in a time-consuming and labour-intensive process making the embroidery appear so dense that it seems like a print from a far and a woven fabric from close sight. Usually the red colour of these shawls are bright red but due to fading it now shines in a beautiful italian red. To the best of my knowledge this shawl is 50-60 years old maybe more.

Please note that this is a quality piece with a wonderful visual impact and the designation “Authentic” means that it was made by the locals used by them and not made in view of the tourism industry.

SIZE: 148 x 218 cm (58.3” x 85,8”), weight: 700g
CONDITION: GOOD. The shawl has been used and minor wear and tear is visible like one small hole in the cream fabric, but the overall condition of this piece is good.

If any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Returns and exchange details

I really wish you to be pleased with your purchase. I try to list the items from my personal collection as honestly and accurately as possible with several photos to describe the condition. Considering the old vintage and antique nature of some of the textiles and objects in my shop, a certain amount of wear and tear, minor damage, repair and maybe few stains may be present. However, every aspect of the condition of each single piece will be described in detail under item description in the shop.

Customer satisfaction is very important to me, so please feel free to contact me for any questions you might have. I look forward to help you.

RETURNS
Since the items come from my personal collection I consider all sales final. I encourage you to ask all questions before buying and please review all photos carefully.
