Fabric : Chiffon Silk
Color : Dark Sap Green with Dull Gold Badla

One of the crown jewels of our collection! This scarf was made from an old chiffon sari, which has all over 'badla' embroidery work. Also known as 'mukeash' work, was done by skilled artisans and now is a dying art, as it is very labor intensive and delicate.

Mukesh work is done with thin flat silver or synthetic strips which is pierced into the fabric, 'knotted' & cut off. The designs made with this technique are always just stipples or dots are varying distances. There is no other 'stitch' involved except for couching, where one wire is wound/laid over the fabric in any pattern & the another wire is used to couch it or hold it in place.

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.
