Midnight blue hosts white stripes as this shawl is woven on a traditional loom with a cotton and silk blend. The borders feature intricate patterns that recall temple rooftops according to a weaving style developed in the 18th century. That's when Ahilya Bai Holkar, the Philosopher Queen, commissioned weavers to create 9-feet sarees without any floral motifs because she didn't care for them. Weavers drew inspiration from a variety of things, including the detailing on the Maheshwar Fort, and wove intricately patterned fabrics that have come to be known as Maheshwari weaves.
