Made from 100% fine wool, this stole size is, 70 X 200cm ( the shawl size is bigger, 100 X 200 cm.) Made from 100% fine quality wool, they are designed and produced in small batches in the Himalayas in Northern India.
I find the design and colour palettes in these stoles and shawls so special and, to be honest, I have seen a lot of shawls in my time! I value high quality materials and I love traditional techniques and heritage motifs. I also love evolution and innovation and these shawls really hit the sweet spot for me. Long sentence I know!
They are machine woven which gives them an intricacy of design and composition that I believe would be possible in a handwoven shawl but it would take uncountable hours, months and months to weave. So using modern weaving techniques, with local labour, combined with imported quality yarns and employing traditional tribal motifs with subtle, modern colour palettes really does it for me.
I only have one piece of most of the shawls photographed
