Kashmir antique shawl band (131 x 28cm)


– Unavailable


131 x 28 cm  //  4ft 4" x 11"

In traditional Ottoman Syrian costume valuable expensive Kashmir strip pieces were used either as cummerbands. On close examination the peice appears to be made from two directions giving an impression it has been joined or cut down across the short length through the long middle. The warps appear continuous however.
