The patterns on this shawl are inspired by early Indian boteh motifs, but are significantly larger and show distinguishing feathery sprouts characteristic of Norwich during the 19th century. The shawl’s palette of brown and beige with soft combinations of muted hues is also characteristic of Norwich shawls.
