Item details

My mother purchased this roll of decorative sari trim on a trip to India in 1959 while she was in Rahjastan. As an Interior Designer I always thought it could be applied to curtains, pillows or even upholstery.

Woven on a beautiful cobalt blue silk background, the gold color metallic threads create a repetitive pattern of graphic flowers. The edges are bordered with gold.

It is 23ft long by 2" in width and has never been used. There is a skip in the pattern when the trim was woven, as seen in the last photograph, about 8ft 4" in from one end, so the trim can definitely be used to edge a pair of 8ft tall curtains. Otherwise the trim is in great condition. There was only one spot close to the skip were a few threads were pulled but I think once the trim is sewn onto fabric, these can be snipped with small scissors.
