Cotton shawl, 'Lapis Origami' (India)

Aparupa Ghosh pays homage to the Japanese paper folding art of origami, stamped over the pastel blue body of this striking shawl. She utilizes the block printing method, hand-carving the designs into wood stamps. Made of cotton, the shawl is completed with a border of lapis and triangular fabric tassels that dangle from each end.
