This item was created

Ethereally lightweight and sheer, this sky blue floral shawl from Uma Tripathi features chikankari, or hand embroidery of a style originating in Lucknow. In chikankari, the fabric is first block-printed with the desired pattern, and then the design is embroidered by hand over the printed areas. The artisan further adorns the cotton and silk blend wrap with kamadani, in which flat gold or silver metallic wire is used to create small dots or floral motifs. The ends of the shawl are crocheted by hand.
