This is a very attractive shawl with delicate hand embroidery and fantastic long ombre fringe. The pastel colored embroidery is a bit faded and very muted. The center of the shawl is made from a cotton silk fabric. The overall condition is very good with some imperfections. Please look at the first photo to see some faint shadowing just above the flowers. I believe this is fading. Also there are two small pinholes and one slit. I have own this item for over 20 years and it was purchased this way. There may be something I have missed, but it would be small. The slit and small pinholes could be closed, but I never bothered and they never opened up more.
The best part is the hand knotted fringe which starts out black, then bright pink, fading to pale pink. I have shown the measures of the fringe and the diameter of the fabric portion or center in the photos. This was a difficult item to photograph and the last photo is truly accurate. Even with the imperfections, this is gorgeous.
Please email with any questions. Thank you.
