Details

Silvery paisleys shower this shawl by Priti with the timeless beauty of Indian art. The shiny motifs are block-printed by hand with varaq, extremely thin foil threads, which are pounded by hand through a labor-intensive process that can take up to 4 hours to make - if it's not raining. The off-white wrap is woven with a silk weft and a cotton warp, resulting in crisp, glossy sheer textures. 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.
