White silk shawl with floral embroidery. The shawl is triangular and is bordered by long white silk fringe on the bottom two edges leading to the point of the triangle. On the body of the shawl there is a wide area of colorful floral embroidery tracing the same bottom two sides. There are vines and leaves in shades of green and various kinds of flowers done in shades of pink and purple. In the center of the V created by the band of embroidery, there is a central embroidered floral motif. The back is identical to the front, making the shawl reversible.
