Large Woven Cashmere Paisley Throw Textile Shawl
Earth tone, very large silk cashmere paisley throw shawl. We found this beautiful piece in a boutique just outside of Paris that specializes in wonderful finds from estate sales. It is believed to be from the mid to late 1800’s and hand woven. It is most likely originally imported into France from India.
The delicate design has the dark central pattern in black ink color and swirls of warm earth tones of reds, oranges and greens. The entire cashmere shawl is surrounded with a block border in coordinating colors. The textile is finished off with a lovely fringe on two sides. There are a few small holes in the fabric - see images.
Dimensions:70" (doesn't include the fringe) X 72"
