Swirling across an opulent wool shawl from Sandeep Malhotra, exuberant floral tendrils come to life in blue, mauve and grey. The wrap imitates the legendary jamawar work. These original textiles were embroidered by hand. So intricate was the work that a person could finish only one shawl in his lifetime. Such shawls were not sold, but were given to kings and queens who, in turn, gave the artisan properties according to the worth of the shawl. Authentic jamawar is virtually unavailable, only replicas such as this are available.
Sandeep has embraced his family's textile endeavor and has been instrumental in its growth. Today his family's workshop provides others in his neighborhood.
Sandeep has two children. He is deeply committed to caring for them while he strives to provide them with the best possible education.
Sandeep supports his two children.
As versatile as it is beautiful. Light enough to be worn as a scarf as well as a shawl. Excellent quality. What made it even better was the extra touches that came with it -- a handwritten note from the artist, and a mesh pouch to store and protect the shawl. Thanks, Sandeep and Novica for helping to make my birthday special!
