Red Paisley Shawls
This bright red and gold and saffron shawl is instantly among my favorite accessories. It just shouts the mysterious beauty and glory of all artistic things India! The jamawar style pattern in a rich gold and saffron is elegant and detailed and I love the bright warm red of the wrap. Dress it up for a wedding or wear casually for a night on the town--this is a statement piece, bold and stunning.
I'm buying this shawl for the second time, because I ruined the first one by washing it in hot water and then drying it in the drying machine. Don't do that - hand wash it in cold water and then let it air dry. The embroidery is stunning - beautiful color, detailed and covers almost all of the shawl. I've been getting a lot of compliments and I love it!
It's not as shiny as I thought it was. I thought there would be some shiny gold thread in it because of the photograph. The shawl has a nice matte finish with no sheen which makes it more appropriate to go with day wear or casual evening wear. Extremely well made. Looking forward to wearing it in the fall.
