The Pashmina Shawl, woven from wool of mountain sheep, has traditionally been the most prized of all possessions in the bridal trousseau! These shawls have a variety in terms of embroidery style and technique with different kinds of needles being used to create magnificent designs, depending on the base fabric and the thread used.
The thicker the wool or fabric, the thicker the thread to embroider with and therefore, the thicker the needle that works the thread, in and out and round about often times!! It’s a skill that takes a life time of learning. Heads bent down, hunched-over backs, ceaseless strife for perfection..eye, needle, thread and fabric, all in hand, carry this beautiful force of tradition and rich heritage.
