WOVENSOULS Phulkari - Antique Indian Textiles
21 Phulkari wedding shawls produced in the early-mid 1900s in Punjab, undivided India are being offered at this auction by WOVENSOULS All of these were originally acquired as a collection to be lived with forever. But as age advances, the idea of 'forever'has changed from an unfathomable distance to a finite horizon not so far away. And so with the vision of passing on these beloved artworks to other responsible lovers of folk art, a major part of the collection will be sold through a series of niche auctions over the next 2 years To augment the descriptions of Phulkaris given here, we recommend reading the note on Phulkaris on our blog that gives never-published-before cultural insights into this category of textiles that once played an integral role in the lives of the people. [to be published Sept 26th].
