Deep-Lake Pure Pashmina Shawl from Uttar Pradesh with Sozni Floral Hand-Embroidery All-Over
Dyed the colour of the loveliest of Kashmiri lakes, this mass of pristine pashmina - which literally folds into almost nothing - has been handwoven and embroidered with great skill and care. The valley is famous the world over for infusing the soft wool of the changra goat with unparalleled exquisiteness, and this number is a fine example of the craft. Its pure diaphanous beauty is set off by the luxuriant sozni in the foreground of the shawl. A distinctly feminine palette of natural pastels have gone into the embroidery, the style of which is endemic to this region of the subcontinent.
