Details

Woven by hand of fine Bishnupur silk, this elegant shawl is designed by Somu and Soma. Bold and beautiful colors flow along the length of the wrap, with shades of blue in the center and browns on each side. The artisans name this design Dhau, which means "waves" in the Bengali language. They paint the original image by hand.

As is typical of genuine handloomed fabric, there are tiny slubs throughout. This occurs when a thread runs out, and the weaver extends it by twisting a new thread together with the old.

Even more dashing and beautiful than pictures. The design is organic without being inelegant, something very much to be cherished and enjoyed.

"100% fun"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This scarf is colorful fun and a great gift to yourself or for some else. When I looked up the story of the Macher Biye, there is a wedding that the fish are attending but they didnt invite one fish. This large forgotten fish invites himself to the wedding and eats the other fish. But with style like this you will always be included and you will remember to always include others.

"truly gorgeous"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

the floral renderings are excellent - detailed and graceful. the fabric is somewhat stiff..i like to use it as a waist tie. it hand washes fine so dont be afraid of the dry clean only tag.
