Details

Teal frames beige in a shawl of sumptuous beauty. Vankar Parbat weaves the shawl on a traditional loom prepared with wool on the warp, and tussar silk on the weft. The Indian weaver then dyes the wrap in the ancient art of shibori, a tie-dying technique that originates in Japan.

Tussar silk is characterized by minor slubs, which contribute to the shawl's semi-coarse texture since the artisan works with untreated yarn.

Some defects in the embroidery at the border - its incomplete (mirrors missing - in this piece). However is still a pretty shawl.

"Love the color, length and texture!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The texture was wonderful -- I'm not into the slippery-shiny fabrics, and some wool can be heavy or scratchy. This was neither -- it had a hand-feel that reminds me a little bit of a light, smooth linen, which makes it perfect for spring or autumn. It also has subtlety of color variation that you can see when you look at it up close. One of my favorite things about this is shawl, though, is that it is long enough to wrap nicely. Not everyone is skinny enough to wear the 60-70" shawls, and have it NOT look like you're trying to wrap a bath towel around yourself. This is long enough to drape like it should.
