Luxurious embroidered stole / shawl
Piece Unique



Dimensions :
46 cm x 291 cm ( 33 cm fringes + 218 cm embroidered panel + 40 cm fringes )
18.1 inch x 114.5 inch ( 12.9 inch fringes  + 85.8 inch embroidered panel + 15.7 inch fringes )


I created this stole with an up-cycled Ikat silk , in green/yellow & deep purple/deep blue shades , with  gold threads . This wonderful and bright fabric was the base for the work.
I fixed it on a thick linen fabric , to be ready to be embroidered.

 I added others elements embroidered , cut on vintage silk saris and I made my rustic wool embroideries.



I added also some pompoms in wool 


Fringes are in wool , the same used for the embroideries .


Pretty flowers cut on an up-cycled sari embroidered , and hand-sewn on the Ikat silk.




This stole is entirely hand embroidered and hand-sewn , I don't work with machine to embroider and to sew. 


Embellished with vintage amulets and coins from India / Pakistan / Afghanistan




The lining is a vintage silk sari , printed flowers :

INFORMATIONS :
Colors and Light may vary depending your screen.
Sometimes marking , irregularities or imperfect embroideries / colors , condition maybe apparent , even if I restore the fabrics before to use them .
This should not be considered as imperfection and are the characteristic of vintage materials and craft method of dyeing.
