The newlywed daughter-in-law of the family had brought this pankha with her when she moved into the house. This was a part of her bridal trousseau given by her parents. It was made using canvas and satin cloth. Floral patterns along with the name of the bride ‘Nasima’ were embroidered using woollen threads and mirrors.
