Ethereal shifting aqua-sky and peacock with floating pink leaves and tiny cream swastiks! The border features landscape items - a house, trees, and a temple.
Organdy silks of Varanasi are woven on a ground of fine silk treated so as to be highly transparent but also strong, supporting rich all over dobby patterning. The cloth is stiff and lustrous, very finely woven ornament and open spaced ground of miraculously ethereal silks that have a life of their own. The cloth can be gently handwashed with mild soap and cool water. Press while damp.
