Finished with a delicate border and tassels, this shawl will be your 'help me get out of bed' on those cold winter mornings.

 

This stunning shawl is handwoven using pure Gaddi wool as warp and Lahauli as weft, both desi breeds found in the Himalayan ranges, as warp. This cuddly big and wide shawl is perfectly sized and 100% soft to give you that toasty and snuggly feeling!


This one of a kind piece has been handwoven by the immensely talented women artisans of the Naggar village in Kullu Valley, Himachal Pradesh and then hand-dyed using natural dye materials from the orchards, fields, and jungles surrounding their villages.

Local wool is referred to in India as ‘desi oon’, and is a mix of many indigenous breeds, often referred to as Gaddi breeds. The wool is bought from the Gaddis, a nomadic pastoralists community, who traverses the Himalayan ranges around the Naggar village through summer to fall. The process of cleaning and sorting the wool is performed entirely by women. The cleaned fibres are taken to Kullu to be carded there and are then hand spun at home using a spindle called a 'takhli'.

The women gather natural dye materials seasonally from the orchards, fields, and jungles surrounding their villages. Local flora that has been used for dyeing are berries and flowers of shrubs called bekhal and shrambal, a grass called looth, rakhal which grows in the higher reaches and walnut bark and shells. The naturally dyed yarns are then ready to be knit or woven.

Kullvi WHIMS is a self-help group [SHG] formed by nine women artisans of Naggar village in Kullu Valley. The women are all traditional artisans, who learnt their craft practices of spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet from their family members and have mostly practised their crafts for themselves, weaving pattus and blankets or knitting sweaters, mojiris and socks. 

The Kullvi WHIMS model provides a fair income for the women artisans who belong to the SHG, empowers them by valuing and validating their skills and attempts to develop links and relationships with the herders.
