Phulkari Bagh with an inner field of geometrical patterns in varying bands and diamond motifs of yellow and white, and the multi-color borders. This textile has three parts attached together to form a shawl.
Phulkari is a rural tradition of hand embroidery, literally meaning “flower work”, that was predominantly employed by the women of Punjab (Northwest India & Pakistan) during the 19th century, and till the beginning of the 20th century. Bagh is a special kind of phulkari in which the whole ground is embroidered.
