Hand selected antiques, special finds and one-of-a-kind treasures from around the world.
Phulkari is an embroidery technique that was used on the cloth you see here, and means "flower working". Such vibrantly hand-sewn pieces would be used to celebrate a momentous event in a woman's life, like a wedding, the passing of a loved one, or childbirth. Each color of silk was thought to possess attributes that would guide her and her family to prosperity. This piece is quite rare with a bright green trim that lines the edges, something uncommon in cloths of this vintage.
