Details

This fabulous chanderi shawl reveals the timeless beauty of varaq printing. Designed by India's Priti, the peach-hued wrap is woven with a silk weft and a cotton warp, resulting in crisp, glossy sheer textures. The dazzling silver diamonds are block-printed by hand using extremely slender foil threads, which are also prepared by hand through a labor-intensive process that can take up to 4 hours to make - if it's not raining. Nowadays, authentic varaq printing is done by a few artisans solely in Jaipur. Named after a city in Madhya Pradesh, chanderi fabrics can be traced back to Vedic times; however, it was not until the 1970's that the cotton and silk blend fabric was developed.

1 Testimonial for Priti

Dear Priti I just received my linen shawl 'Persian Garden'. It is so beautiful, thank you so much for creating such a delicate and lovely item. It is very soft and the colourful flowers remind me of a perfect summer's day, Wonderful! Angela UK
