Angavasthram Part 3

I thought it would be a good idea to show several Angavasthrams and to make sure you could see the length of them. And to emphasize the narrow width when they are all pleated and ironed. I have 7 and they are all gorgeous fine white cotton. Some have gold thread warp brocade for the outside fancy part and the red and black ones seem to have a red or black silk warp stripe with gold brocade.

Here you can see the outsides of them again. The middle one on the hanger measures a full 47 inches wide when opened out. It is 1 ½” wide when worn. I haven’t found anything about these narrow ones on the web so if anyone has any information, please send it in a comment or email me. Next time the subject will be: IRONING!

  1. What a gift! Thank you so very much for sharing your wisdom and experiences of weaving, especially during this insular time in history. I have learned so much, and had questions answered that I have carrying around for a long time. The possibilities with weaving are endless. So much to discover and learn!
    With gratitude and blessings to you in this new year –
