Persian Paisley Throw
My reversible vintage throws are made from recycled cotton saris. A Krishna devotee from Bengal collects them for me all year round. There are five saris in each throw.After meticulously sorting through piles and piles of saris, I select the designs for the front and reverse. The five layers are hand-stitched together by local village women to create a deliciously soft throw. Each one is unique. Some may have small imperfections and /or patches. This only adds to their charm. Approx 220 x 150cm.
Cornflower blue/white paisley floral vines ( photos 1,2) with geometric cinnamon and blue border ( photo 3 ). On the reverse , different floral design, also in cornflower blue and white ( photos 4 - 6) with small side border and featured white flowers .Machine washable.
