Chevon Cashmere Embroidered Scarf by Kashmir Loom (INDIA)
We have used the traditional fine sozni embroidery usually seen in classic florals in a contemporary chevron pattern. The design is placed around the scarf and the edges are finished in a fine blanket stitch (Locally known Kaaj)
The weaving and embroidery are done by artisans working in their individual homes. This has been the traditional practice through the period of shawl making in Kashmir and the skills have been passed down generations. It is mostly men who execute the very finest embroidery that is always practiced on pashmina. This is a highly skilled profession that remains even today deeply steeped in the Kashmiri Sufi tradition. Embroidery becomes a form of meditation; of focused attention to the meticulous standards imposed by the art in which every tiny stitch is part of a jewel -like mosaic. Ends are finished with a natural fringe.
Each piece bears the Kashmir Loom Signature in pharsi language, embroidered in the corner. A mark of our quality.
