Description

Green silk square shawl with long fringe. The center is a large square with rounded corners. There is a wide border around all four sides made from green silk threads intertwined into diamond shapes with knots at all four points. At the four corners of the shawl, the decorative threads are more closely spaced giving a gathered look to the corners. Around the bottom edges of the knotted border, a fringe hangs from each of the bottom decorative knots.
