Silk shawl, 'Sheer Illusion in Blue' (India)

This breathtaking shawl is woven of pure silk on a traditional handloom. India's Syed Izaz Hussein creates the design, which features alternating stripes of opaque and sheer silk fabric in sky blue and cyan. The sheer segments are accented with leaf-like shapes for added interest. Delicate knotted fringe completes the design.
