Kashmiri Wool Shawls and Scarves
Kashmiri Wool Shawls are so named because they are a traditional craft of the Kashmir region in North Western India. They are hand woven from pure wool before teams of skilful embroiderers adorn them with wool embroidery in colourful patterns. The women of Kashmir traditionally wore Salwar Kameez, (the long tunic top and loose fitting pants), and a brightly coloured shawl was the time-honoured way to keep warm in the chilly Vale of Kashmir.
Jamavar Cutwork Stoles and Shawls are also synonymous with the weavers of Kashmir. Each colour in the intricate pattern is woven, then cutaway to leave sheer delicate sections of wool. Jama means robe and war means yard. King and nobles bought the woven fabric by the yard, wearing it as a gown or using it as a wrap or shawl.
