Vintage Egyptian handloomed shawl, made in Aswan circa 1989.
Combination cotton/silk. Silk origin is unknown regarding whether it is generated from silk worms or plant based.
If necessary, hand wash gently in cold water, do not soak. Roll in a dry towel to remove moisture and do not wring. First wash add 1 cup of dissolved ordinary table salt to minimise dye loss.
May be steam pressed on a medium heat, using a pressing cloth so direct contact is avoided.
