Embroidered Wedding Shawl from Afghanistan

This embroidered wedding is from Afghanistan, the embroidery is in the style known as Phulkari, also found in the Punjab regions of India and Pakistan.
In the Punjab the usual colours for Phulkari are orange and gold, in this piece from Afghanistan the colours are green and a deep red.
Each end is finished with an unusual crochet like fringe.
There is a faded area in the middle of the cloth caused by exposure to sunlight, probably where it was folded and stored.
