Handwoven silk and wool checked shawl.

This shawl was made by rural weavers who form part of Avani’s network of artisans in the Indian Himalayas.

Avani is an NGO working on a variety of projects, including the preservation and revival of the traditional crafts of spinning, natural dyeing and weaving.

The shawl’s checked pattern is formed by alternating sections of muga silk and merino wool threads. The beige is the silk’s natural hue while the black has been hand dyed using natural colours.

Any slight irregularities in the fabric are due to the artisanal production process.
