A phulkari bagh shawl on red ground embroidered with standard Phulkari patterns, in varying bands of yellow and pink. This textile piece has three parts attached together to form a shawl. It is embroidered with stripes of unusual intricate geometrical patters. Baghs (or 'gardens') are large phulkari pieces, in which the entire body is covered with embriodery, as opposed to phulkaris with more scattered work.
