Description

Lightweight shawl that is hand-made featuring folk embroidery on cotton fabric that is weaved on a traditional “khadi”, a five-to-six feet-long machine made of wood. This specific shawl features a beautiful floral pattern and traditional dancers doing the dandiya dance, which has been practiced in the Thar region over millennia.

Your purchase of this incredibly beautiful shawl will help support an art form that is slowing fading away in the region as well as help create economic empowerment for women and men who rely on this craft to survive as their traditional livelihood becomes endangered by climate change.
