    Beautiful piece of silk fabric that has peacock feather woven into it. I am hoping someone can direct me to a site that can give me some information on where these were initially made. Not sure if it was India or not. I do know that this piece was originally purchased in Jaipur India 40 years ago but may be about 80 to 90 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
