Weaving green and purple into a maroon shawl, India Social preserves Maheshwari tradition. This particular style of shawls originates in the 18th century with Ahilya Bai Holkar, the Philosopher Queen renowned for her wisdom and bravery, and who commanded armies into battle. She once commissioned weavers to design long sarees without floral motifs, as she did not care for them. The minimalist design of the shawl is bordered with golden zari detailing. Made in India.
