A symbol of the Hindu Renaissance, Banarasi silk is nothing short of luxurious. India's Madhu Agrawal presents this tasteful wrap scarf, woven by hand of fine Banarasi silk on a jacquard loom. The dark, colorful stripes are achieved using the ikat technique, where the threads are tie-dyed before being woven into this lovely accessory. The width of the scarf allows it to double as a shawl.
