History tells of Ahilya Bai Holkar, the Philosopher Queen renowned for her wisdom and bravery who commanded armies into battle. She once commissioned weavers to design long sarees without floral motifs, as she did not care for them. Weavers drew inspiration from the detailing on the Maheshwar Fort, and wove intricately patterned fabrics that have come to be known as Maheshwari weaves. India Social preserves this legendary tradition with this bright yellow shawl, woven on a hand loom with a cotton and silk blend featuring discreet shades of green and rose.
