Detail Shawls-Stoles: There are three fibes from which Kashmir shawls are made- wool, Pashmina and Shahtoosh. The prices of the three cannot be compared – woollen shawls being within the reach of the most modest budget and Shahtoosh being a once in a lifetime purchase. Woollen shawls are popular because of the embroidery worked on them. The quality of the embroidery and the type of wool used creates thed differences in price. Wool woven in Kashmir is 100% pure. Many types of embroidery are used in the shawls-‘zozni’ or needlework is generally incorporated in the panel along the sides of the shawl. Motifs and/or abstract designs or stylised paisley patterns…. Are worked in one or two, Shawl weaving flourished in Kashmir under the patronage of the Mughals. The pashmina and shahtoosh shawls of Kashmir are woven out of the fleece of the Tibetan goat. The pashmina shawl usually comes in subtle shades of cream, beige, brown and grey, depending on the natural colour of the fleece. They may be dyed to produce brighter colours or livened up with embroidery. The shahtoosh is even more delicate than the pashmina. It is so fine and soft that it passes through a ring quite easily . Ladakh has a most picturesque and fascinating weaving tradition. The natural coloured wool is woven into broad carpets, sacks and saddle- bags.
