Zardosi dupatta Indian embroidered silk shawl
A dupatta is an Indian head cover or a shawl depending on its usage. Zardosi refers to the elaborate form of embroidery featuring metallic threads used for decoration.

This example dates from the first half of the 20th century when the metallic threads were real and not plastic imitations. To prove the point, this dupatta weighs over four pounds. It is in very good condition with no holes and only a few loose threads. It measures 162 by 92 inches.
