We invite you to watch the video on our home page to see how these magnificent shawls are woven. These borders reflect the buddhist influence from Tibet in Kinnaur, traditionally. The price of an ethnic shawl is proportional to the complexity of the border. The quality of these shawls is astounding. They are a refined and modern version of the " Himalayan shawls" woven in the Kullu valley.

Care and Maintenance
If the process described below does not suit you, you can certainly send the shawl for DRY CLEANING.
HOW TO WASH YOUR SHAWL SAFELY:
Dissolve a little quantity of mild detergent - like gentle shampoo or woolen soap - with cold or lukewarm water (at 30 °C /86 °F maximum)
Submerge the shawl in the water and move it gently for a few minutes. Do not use fabric softener and rinse the shawl very well by running cool water through it to remove the soap.
You can then take out extra water by applying gentle pressure.
NEVER RING, NEVER TWIST.
Remove the excess water by rolling the shawl in a clean towel.
Preferably lay it flat. If not possible, fold it once or twice to prevent the fibres to be stretched too much and hang it on the clothes line in avoiding direct sun or any proximity to heat sources.
Once dry, if available, the shawl can be steamed which will fluff the fibres. Otherwise, it can be ironed with a warm iron.
