Gold has been considered a luxury and symbol of wealth for thousands of years. This shawl features gold-printed patterns on a plain weave. The center of the pattern, consisting of purple squares, is filled with polygonal patterns, including bamboo shoots and other assorted flowers on the top and bottom ends. Textiles with gold print are extremely precious and reflect the owner's aristocratic status.
