Heavy handwork pure silk nakshi kantha embroidery dupatta/shawl with
- dancing village ladies (tribal dance) - 2 pairs

Rainbow colored huts add brightness to this heirloom piece.
The running kantha stitch (nakshi) in between motifs (in blank spaces) adds to the beauty of this drape.
This hand embroidery was completed by single artisan in about 6 weeks time. The intricacy of hut roofs is worth appreciating.
