This a silk dupatta with beautiful appliqué work on it.
Appliqué work lends a magical beauty to the fabric with ornamental needlework bringing together pieces of fabric onto the base fabric and resulting in unique designs. Smaller pieces of fabrics are used to sew designs on top of the larger fabric, creating a delightful kaleidoscope of patterns and colours. This technique was originally used to extend the life of fabrics and later evolved into an art-form by itself.
The base fabric is silk. Silk exudes a regality that very few other fabrics can match. The brilliant shine that vibrates from a silk fabric spells class and traditional beauty. India is one of the top producers of silk in the world and the fabric is always in demand for its visual attractiveness. People associate silk with special occasions and richness. Silk is alluring and can boast of a grand appeal as well as a tinge of nostalgia.
