Default Canadian para wing

I am looking for opinions on this strange wing.
Thick canopy, no sections visible.
Back looks crudely made, possibly Indian/Pakistani?

Has evidence of been worn on a uniform.
I could not find a similar wing on the forum.

It's a modern copy of one of the English made Canadian para wings WW2, rear should be a mixed brown and white cotton thread. This is a Pakistan made fake.
