Indian Gauze Scarves

We were walking around the mall when we saw these scarves for sale. Made in India, they are a very open gauze kind of weave. They also have different kinds of warp threads running through and come in a variety of colors.

In this picture you can see the warp ribbon yarn, some metallic, and some yarn that looks like novelty slubby handspun cotton maybe?

Over all the effect is very festive. The down side was the gauzy structure was very fragile, all of the scarves had a run in the weave or a hole in it. Or we would have bought a couple.

I was disappointed because I would have like to have one or two as examples to study. I had to settle for these pictures taken with a cell phone.

Has anybody every woven something like this and have some suggestions on how to make such a scarf?

Have a good day!
