The warm colors of the Madhya Pradesh sunset inspire this shawl from India Social. Woven on a traditional loom with a cotton and silk blend, the yellow shawl is underscored with pink and golden details. This shawl is woven in the tradition of Maheshwari shawls, dating back to the 18th century with Ahilya Bai Holkar, the Philosopher Queen. She was renowned for her wisdom and bravery, and she commanded armies into battle. She once commissioned weavers to design long sarees without floral motifs, as she did not care for them.
