A hand-crafted cashmere pashmina, light as a feather and beautifully soft, finished with a natural fringe, and is fully reversible. Hand-woven in aqua blue and red. Crafted in Kashmir in 2019.
This pashmina is part of a range developed as a revival of classic shawls. Made in an Ikit weave pattern found mainly in the state of Odesa. In this Ikit technique the ‘weft’ yarn is ‘unwrapped’ and tie-dyed, then carefully rewound using a hand charka and then precisely woven into the pattern of this shawl. This merger of yarns and colours is called Sangam.
The inspiration for the colours and design comes from the sunset reflections of sunlight on a lake. The style was first developed in 2016 while working on the design for a collection called ‘Shades of Mountain’ in which working with two colours only was experimented with.
The cashmere used in this shawl comes from Changthangi goats in Leh, Ladakh where temperatures can reach minus 35 degrees during winter in this cold desert region of the Himalayas. The cashmere from this region is considered amongst the best in the world, it is combed from the chest and underbelly of the goats. and is light and warm with amazing insulating properties, the fibres are extremely fine, varying between 9 - 16 microns.
Size: 206 x 69.5 cm ( 81 x 27 inches )
