A stunning dowry textile, a phulkari bagh, with geometric silk embroidery motif throughout the handwoven khaddar cotton base cloth. this is a finer and rarer work of art.
Phulkari and Bagh are embroidery shawls made and worn by the women from Punjab in north India. In phulkari, the embroidery ornaments the cloth whereas in a bagh it covers every inch of the entire ground as much so that the base cloth is not visible at all. Phulkari is traditionally made on Khaddar cotton which is hand spun and handloomed.
This bagh is covered entirely with heavy phulkari embroidery and is given to brides at the time of wedding.
