In the late 18th century these enigmatic pieces reached the shores of France where they were popularised by empress Josephine as symbols of exotic luxury. This warm floral embroidered shawl is a melange of stylised botehs and guldaans, filled and surrounded by foliage and delicate spring blossoms and french roses. The borders feature a repeat mehrab and flowerhead motif.
