Kani Machi Buti Hand Woven Pashmina Shawl Off White

Regular price Rs.275,000.00 INR

Although seemingly simple, the small geometric floral buti on our machi buti shawls can only be woven by our very skilled artisans. Such small florals were characteristic of the early examples of this very special twill tapestry weave.

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 today only in the Kashmir valley.
