Amritsar, in the northern Indian state of Punjab, is a spiritual pilgrimage site for the Sikh religion. The city is home to the breathtaking Harmandir Sahib, called the Golden Temple, the the most-visited gurdwara in the world. These Sikh places of worship, by custom, are open to anyone regardless of race, gender, or beliefs, and as many as 100,000 people visit the magnificent 16th-century Harmandir Sahib each day.
It is in Amritsar, in the shadow of the temple's golden facade, that our vibrant scarf is made, a combination of India's ancient textile traditions and 21st-century technology. Photo-realistic, digitally printed images of orchids and peacock feathers mingle with stylized designs adapted from 19th-century shawls. The result is an accent that is as vibrant and contemporary as India itself. Made of soft, smooth modal, a semi-synthetic fabric that is perfect for travel.
Made in India. 100% modal, a semi-synthetic, smooth fabric. 80"L x 29"W.
It's a lovely, lightweight scarf, and the variety of colors used makes it particularly versatile. My only complaint is that the scarf is inked on one side only. The color on the underside, therefore, is dull and muted.
