Dosa Temple Blessings Shawl

Designed by Christina Kim
Produced by Dosa

In temples across India, gifts of flower garlands are offered to the deities in request of special blessings. As fresh garlands replace the old, the previous day’s blessed offerings are carefully collected and sorted by artisans who use the petals for dyeing.

This handwoven Indian Khadi silk shawl is dyed with hibiscus petals gathered from the SiddhiVinayak temple in Mumbai. Khadi is an every-season fabric prized for its nuanced aesthetics and labor-intensive, rather than resource-intensive production. This silk shows variations in color, texture, and weave, which serve as small reminders of its handmade, natural state.

83 x 39 in.
