This shawl with usual dimensions : 6.8 ft length, and 3.5 ft breadth, woven of fine wool, named Tusha, perhaps for its tush or Shahtush like softness and rich look, wool’s thickness about sixty counts, and microns, about thirty-five, is a product of the hands of skilled Kashmiri weavers. It is completely hand-woven and the purity of the fibre is meticulously maintained. Soft as a new-born babe, it discovers all its beauty and excellence in its feather-touch like feel. Though not an expensive class of wool, and hence neither its product, it abounds in a Pashmina shawl-like aura and grace. A plain piece or adorned with embroidered patterns the beauty of a Tusha shawl is simply superb.

The Tusha wool is endowed with a strange ability to attribute to any colour immense depth and richness; hence, any colour is a Tusha shawl’s colour, though a deeper tint better befits the kind of wool a Tusha shawl is woven from, and in that it acquires a rich lustre and the most gorgeous look. Broadly, when plain a Tusha shawl’s beauty better reveals in deeper tint, whichever the colour, and when embroidered, the embroidered patterns shall better reveal against a lighter tint. Among plain Tusha shawls one with deeper tint has delightful contrast against the glowing fair complexion of a youthful maiden; and contrarily, a lighter tint is a senior damsel’s grace. Unsurpassed in beauty and elegance an embroidered Tusha shawl befits every age and every colour base.

In brief, a Tusha shawl – gorgeous and lustrous, is the luxury of a pocket with little money for it has the look of an expensive shawl whereas it is within everyone’s reach. A shawl for every age-group as a class a Tusha shawl is a weaver’s pride. The Tusha wool being quite soft and delicate special skill is required for transforming it into a woven piece, and hence, even in Kashmir there are not many hands able to spin it into yarn and weave it into a length. Obviously, a Tusha shawl is the craftsmanship only of a master weaver. The magic of a Tusha shawl lies in its close weaving and in retaining its fur-like softness – a feel of touching a young lamb or putting one’s hand on a pool of carded cotton.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
