This embroidery pattern and working are based on ethnic Indian designs.
The progress on the embroidery on this blue yoke- the tunic being woven ikat, the white colour on the tunic formed light blue streaks in some places. The next colour on the yoke was light blue, this was also worked in herringbone stitches.
