We feel truly privileged and honoured to be working alongside these remarkable Master Craftsmen and women in Kashmir. The shawls are handwoven and hand embroidered using only traditional methods thus also resulting in treating the environment kindly. The time taken to create a Kashmir shawl varies significantly, from weeks to years for a heavily embroidered shawl.
The wonderful, placid and kind natured people of Kashmir have endured much suffering over many years, from political conflict to the huge devastation caused by last years flooding. Being able to work alongside the local craftspeople we can be assured they directly receive the fair return deserved for their extraordinary pieces of art and remarkable talent.
