Long sheer cotton shawl with embroidery. The shawl is rectangular with small scallops along all four side edges. Each scallop has an embroidered edge and contains one embroidered dot in the middle of the scallop. Then there is a continuous row of dots along the inside edge of the scallops. Inside of that is a row of alternating embroidered floral motifs. Then there is another row of dots to the inside of that, making a border around all four sides of the shawl. Inside the border, covering the rest of the central body of the shawl are evenly spaced embroidered dots. Across both ends there is a wide border containing four large, heavily embroidered paisley motifs. In between each is a vertical row of four embroidered flowers. On the top and bottom of the row of paisleys is the border of alternating flowers inside two rows of dots that runs along the whole edge of the shawl. The shawl is reversible.
