A Royalty - Long Blue Embroidered Cotton Silk Scarf & Face Mask
Hand Block Printed
Hand Appliquéd (Rabari)
Block printing in India dates back to the 19th century. The teak blocks used to print exotic finery for the Siamese royalty, have now become a rarity. Efforts are being made to revive these art forms, lost in the sands of time.
This stunning wrap exudes a rare beauty. Natural colors are mixed together to create a rich array of dyes. A deftly carved wedge of wood has been used to stamp intricate patterns on fabric. Later, the fabric is washed and sun-dried. The telltale signs of the human hand, adds to the charm. The wool motifs replicate the printed pattern. This is a must-have piece to enliven your wardrobe.
