These Bengal East indian products are typically done in yellow silk chain stitch on a fine lightweight cotton ground in the form of stoles , shawls and rumals ( square covers ) as in this example. Another previous example we once handled came with the signature including the citation of Aleppo meaning that these Indian clothes were traded through that Syrian city.
