Kashmiri shawls – from Kashmir, India – look like ordinary shawls, but they are actually woven with three fibers including shahtoosh, wool, and pashmina. They are popular for their elaborate embroidery and colorful combinations. Some types of Kashmiri shawls are made with silk threads making them look more ‘flowy.’
Types of Kashmiri Shawls
Kinds of Kashmiri Shawls include the following:
Plain kashmiri shawls
Only one side of plain kashmiri shawls is fully needle-embroidered with different designs and color combinations. Reversible kashmiri shawls
Reversible kashmiri shawls consist of two-block colored, contrasting sides and printed bordered edges. They can be interchanged to match any outfit color.
Choosing Kashmiri Shawls (Buying tips)
Length: For effective coverage, choose a long kashmiri shawl for draping over the shoulders and upper body. Long shawls are more versatile because they can also be worn like off-shoulder or halter-top dresses.
Allergy: If you are allergic to wool, do not wear a kashmiri shawl. It has a certain amount of wool fiber enough to trigger an allergy attack.
