The Jamawar shawls are
sophistication at their best. The hand-woven Jamawar shawls are considered to
be ‘rare pieces of art’. Its unique demeanour, flare, sophistication and
artistry make it one of a kind. The Jamawar shawl is woven rather like a
tapestry, as numerous shuttles loaded with richly coloured threads are moved
around even in a single weft line because of the constant and almost fantastic
change of colours which can be as many as fifty in a single piece. The most
well-known Jamawar weaving centre is Kashmir and Punjab in India.
This simply-taupe Kani Jamawar shawl from Amritsar, Punjab, is made of fine pure wool. Added to the elegance and richness of the shawl is the art of Kani weaving. Kani shawl weaving exhibits extraordinary craftsmanship wherein colourful threads are woven around small sticks called ‘Kani’ in the local language. The multi-coloured floral vines create a beautiful contrast with the rather dull taupe, giving the shawl an ethereal beauty. The flowers also give a cheerful and lively vibe to the shawl. It is a classic piece of attire that oozes elegance and exquisite taste of the wearer. The shawl is extremely soft and feels luxuriant against the skin. It is perfect for every special occasion and will give you a chic and classy look. Wrap the shawl around your neck or drape it around your shoulder to make you stand out in a crowd.
