While a shawl alone won't keep you warm up in the snows of the Himalayas, this amazingly soft and warm and beautiful Jamawar style shawl is so comforting in a cold or damp or foggy evening winter evening in California or spring, summer and autumn evening up the Rockies. The pattern is lovely, harking back to the Mughal designs, and the colors muted enough to match so many things. I love it!
This shawl is a wearable work of art. The silk is fine and soft. The swirling strokes of design have a lot of energy. The colors are vibrant. Looks great open as a shawl or folded in half and wrapped as a scarf.
Really liking "Indian wine" cotton shawl. It can be used as a wrap and also looped around the neck loosely as a scarf (I have several tying tricks). Lovely cotton fabric in a deep burgundy with silver grey stripes. The fringe is well done and doesn't dangle too long (which I like a lot). Easy care: I wash it in warm water in the machine in a mesh bag with eco-friendly laundry soap and hang to dry immediately to smooth out any wrinkles. Great buy!
"My father has been in the field of Kashmiri shawls since he graduated. But I think my association with this art goes back to very long ago when I was a child. My grandmother use to weave shawls…."
