Description

These very special wool shawls are hand spun and handwoven in village homes in rural Rajasthan to traditional designs. They are sourced from the Khadi initiative started by Ghandi to bring textile production back to India from the mills of Manchester. This is truly from a cottage industry supported by the Indian government to encourage and preserve traditional skills and rural communities.

There may be slight irregularities in these shawls. Every one is a hand made product made by a different person on a different loom in a different home. This is the beauty of them.

These triangle motif shawls are exceptionally thick and heavy and warm

This is a piece to be treasured and worn over and over. A really beautiful gift for yourself or another.

Made from 100% hand spun wool.

I measured the shawls and all of them varied slightly. They are all approximately 80" X 38"

Hand wash cold with gentle detergent. Dry Flat. Do not tumble dry
