Hand woven jacquard silk and wool shawl #113
by Indian Artisan
$115.00 / On Sale
This shawl is hand woven using antique patterns in a complicated three thread jacquard technique with silk and wool threads. It features a deep border pattern on the ends and sides with a plain field in the middle. The jacquard technique allows the shawl to be reversible. We have a small selection of colours to choose from. This one features 2 black silk with black wool threads, creating a lustrous textured black.
We bought these shawls directly from the weaver, Neeruddin in Varanasi, India, who, with his sons, carries on the ancient art of Benarsi weaving. We pay a fair wage for these shawls.
Measuring 111 x 202cm, it is large enough to envelope the body, fling over the shoulder or drape over the couch.
