Sindh, Pakistan is known for its rich embroidery traditions. This piece is a shawl and it is decorated using the pakko (‘solid’) embroidery style. This is characterized by its floral and leaf motifs, thickly embroidered using floss silk thread. Almost the entire linen ground is covered in dense red and green embroidered floral shapes.
