This scarf has just the right amount of bling! The sheer chiffon fabric is embroidered in an assortment of colors very delicately and is embellished with badla (which is a unique form of using silver foil in embroidery). The edging is a lovely printed frill with a dull gold lace.

This beautiful scarf has been restructured from an old duppatta that belonged to my mother. Duppatta's (or chunni's) are traditional long head & body scarves custom made to match the traditional Indian outfit of Salwar Kameez. This traditional outfit is worn essentially in Northern India by Punjabi & Kashmiri women. Since these duppattas are worn as a sign of respect and femininity, each duppatta is a work of art in itself! The gorgeous vintage find has been sized to a standard scarf size with utmost care to maintain the original charm, yet have a new life of it's own.

The scarf has hand rolled edges and is ready to use. It will make a great fall accessory as a neck scarf, head scarf or head band, purse scarf or even a hip scarf.

The scarf will come beautifully gift - packaged in an printed organza bag with detailed wash & care instructions.

If you would like to get this scarf shipped as a gift to a loved one, please mention the details in "Note to Seller" section of the checkout process.

Note 1 - The fabric is anywhere from 10 to 40 yrs old, hence there may be small spots & loose threads. Although we've tried to make the scarf as neat as possible, please allow for some blemishes.

Note 2 - Although we've tried to maintain the actual colors of the scarves to as close as possible, Please allow for slight color variations as each monitor's colors vary.
