Teal frames beige in a shawl of sumptuous beauty. Vankar Parbat weaves the shawl on a traditional loom prepared with wool on the warp, and tussar silk on the weft. The Indian weaver then dyes the wrap in the ancient art of shibori, a tie-dying technique that originates in Japan.
Tussar silk is characterized by minor slubs, which contribute to the shawl's semi-coarse texture since the artisan works with untreated yarn.
