The frenzy of blooming flowers in springtime Kashmir had inspired the floral vine pattern of our Gulnawaz shawl. A glorious red serves as a vibrant canvas for the masterfully woven design. The much-written-about flora of the valley has served as an inspiration for crafts since centuries.
The famous Kashmir shawls that were at the height of fashion in the late 18th and 19th centuries were woven in a fine twill tapestry technique called Kani. The technique gets its name from the small eyeless bobbin called Kan, used to weave the design into fabric. This exquisite technique survives till today only in the Kashmir valley.
