Honor Rituals & Phulkari Shawls - A Hypothesis

By: PRLog

Proposed on the basis of findings of exploratory research conducted in the field

CENTRAL, Singapore - Feb. 16, 2022 - PRLog -- "Use of Phulkaris in Wedding Rituals - Social Practices in Punjab pre-1947" is a report based on an independent exploratory study that focuses on the use of Red & White Phulkaris as proof of honour in wedding rituals.

The study was conducted by Jaina Mishra using a three-pronged approach.

a) Field interviews were conducted with senior women in several towns in Punjab.

b) Published material based on fieldwork in the early '70s was studied

c) A large group of rare red & white phulkaris were examined.

According to published references, the status of the family in Punjab in the past (1800s) was determined by the code of honour.

This code had well-developed rules that governed social behaviour.  To ensure compliance to these rules, traditional rituals were practiced. Combining this paradigm with the evidence presented in the red & white phulkaris that were examined, the report proposes the hypothesis that these textiles played a crucial role in the honour rituals.
