Stunning textiles such as this vibrant Marseille Shawl—with its joyful mélange of colors and beautiful, stylized botanical design—found their way from India to Europe, where they were prized, imitated and ultimately incorporated into the culture. Jacquard-loomed with centuries-old techniques near the foothills of the Himalayas, this is a must-have fashion statement. 100% lightweight merino wool. Made in India. 76"l. x 28.5"w.
Echoes the intricately woven shawls held in our Natural History Museum’s India subcontinent collection.
