BANDHANI MASTERPIECE SHAWL

$240.00

A Bandhani Masterpiece Shawl doesn’t come along every day. This one is resplendent with color: rich, deep coral, magenta purple and touches of white and gold across the surface of the pure silk. Each corner is festooned with a  hand-crocheted and beaded tassel. Did you know that the earliest evidence of Bandhani dates back as early as 4000 B.C?

The colors used convey different meanings. While the hues are more varied now, some traditional ones still hold important cultural meaning. Red represents a bride or woman who was recently married, and yellows are used for a new mother. The city of Bhuj in Gujarat is well known for its red Bandhani.

Description

Our Bandhani Masterpiece Shawl is a bit non-conventional. Traditionally in bandhani tie and dye, only two colors are used at a time. Historically, the colors yellow and red, which are lucky in Indian culture, were used. Now, bright colors such as yellow, red, green, orange and pink are used in various shades.

Our shawl is 84″L by 43″ W, and has hand-crocheted and beaded tassels which are 5.5″ in length.

    The word Suzani comes from the Persian word suzan, which means needle. Originating from nomadic tribes in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries, suzani textiles have become highly collectable and valued for their beautiful decoration and fine craftsmanship. Traditional designs include the sun and moon; flowers, leaves, vines, fruits (especially pomegranates); fish and birds. These motifs were believed to imbue the fabric with spiritual powers, offering protection or strength to their owners. We have 2 of these coats in the boutique right now, in varied patterns and same color palette.
