Georgia - Hand Woven Woollen Shawl From The Himalayas
These beautiful shawls are hand woven in the Himalayas. They are super soft and cosy, and made from a blend of local Himalayan wool and merino wool.
The yarn used is partly natural undyed and partly hand dyed naturally with tesu flowers. The yarn is then hand woven into beautiful shawls which have a fabulous herringbone weave.
The shawls are environmentally friendly as only natural fibres and natural dyes are used and they are made using a hand loom. The dyeing is done by our partners using a number of naturally occurring materials, most of which are plants. These include sappanwood, madder, tesu (flame of the forest), indigo, pomegranate, myrobalan (harada), henna and shellac.
The length of the scarf is approx 210 cm and width 65 cm. In addition, there are tassels of roughly 7 cms length.
There may be slight variations in the size of these shawls as they are made on a hand loom. Any small inconsistencies in weaving and dyeing, we believe, just add to the character of this shawl.
Dry clean to preserve the beauty of this shawl. Alternatively hand wash gently with non-biological liquid. Dry flat in the shade.
