This is simply the most elegant shawl I've ever seen. The center panel is an intricately woven white edged with a soft black border. Both the white and black sections have rectangles of a slightly looser weave, hard to describe but beautiful.
While its 24" width and 68" length make it an ideal size for a shawl, the fabric is light and soft enough to be worn as a scarf as well.
Handwoven by women of the "Long Neck" tribe of northern Thailand, consistently recognized for their fine artistry.
