A kaleidoscope of flowers and paisleys brings lavish elegance to this wool shawl from Sandeep Malhotra. The composition is woven in shades of green, black, strawberry, and purple in a style that replicates the legendary the jamawar textile art, originally executed with laborious needlework. These ancient textiles were embroidered by hand with such intricate detail that a person could finish only one shawl in his lifetime. Jamawar 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. Nowadays authentic jamawar is virtually unavailable, and only replicas such as this are available.
