While shawls of this variety are known for their gravity and their strictly traditional look, this is one pashmina shawl that has a more contemporary look. In terms of colour and motif, it features a bunch of paisleys embroidered within equi-sized quadrilaterals across the field of the shawl in teal, peach, red, and ochre. The foundation is a solid pristine colour that serves to bring out the colours in the foreground in all their vividness and contrast. Such a shawl is best layered over a casual Western ensemble to add some of that traditional quirk to your look.

Zoom in on the paisleys that make up the field of this shawl. The style of weave that you see on it is called the kani weave, the word being the vernacular for bobbins. Each colour is discretely woven into the pure pashm fabric, a process that is highly demanding in terms of both time and personal precision. Given that the palette is rich and varied, it is a fine example of endemic Indian handiwork, a wearable work of art that is at once traditional and quirky. Best donned at a casual rendezvous with extended family.
