Black Shawl from Kullu with Kinnauri Woven Triple Border and Zigzag Weave

Black Shawl from Kullu with Kinnauri Woven Triple Border and Zigzag Weave

In the mountain settlements of the subcontinent reside whole villages populated by weaver-families. From generations ago, they have been weaving pure homegrown wool into exquisite shawls that are now famous the world over. It is a fine example of this age-old workmanship that you see on this page, handpicked from the snowy recesses of Kullu. Moulted yak fleece that emerges from the thick, long-haired overcoat of the Indian yak are used to make these shawls that are unparalleled in terms of warmth and durability (think mountain winters and the harsh surroundings that are to be withstood).

Adding to its beauty is the gorgeous embroidery done in fiery pastels such as red, orange, and blue. The zigzag weave that you could zoom in on has a special name, kinnauri, that is endemic to Himachal Pradesh. There are three thick and spaced out panels of coloured weave from the border upwards, which dominate the field of the shawl. Its inky black base colour, interspersed with some inevitable bits of white observable upon zooming, serves to bring out the charm of the kinnauri. Team this with a statement evening saree at a gala in the height of the winters.
