I don't mean glitter by the title.I scanned this piece of fabric after finding I didn't have the time to take a decent photo and upload it - though I may do this so that its colour can be seen. In case your curious the colour is originally like a Cadbury purple with these golden shimmery motifs

Another snippet form the fabric piece I scanned up yesterday, this time the pattern is more together and closely placed to each motif and layered. Again using the strict palette of dark dull yellow and cyan/blue. Uses paisley designs in it as well as border designs I have already posted in the previous post.
Found fabrics nearly always have amazing amasses of patterns and motifs, the fabrics that are transluscent are often even more decorative, often used as scarves or dubattas and so will enable the creator to create more elaborative designs all over, as parts may or may not be seen depednign on how and where tied/knotted or wrapped around the hair etc.
I picked out these patterns form a scrap piece of fabric, they use traditional motifs like paisley designs (which sound British but look Indian - weird) and almost Mosque like border designs.
