For over 500 years, families of talented artisans in the Kashmir Valley have produced masterpieces of embroidered shawls, jackets, coats and capes, which came to define European fashion in the early 1800s.

The shawl weavers of Kashmir have handed down this tradition through generations of families, drawing inspiration from the palette and flora of the Himalayan foothills.  Their intricate designs are embroidered on the finest Marino wool, crafted in the Kashmir Valley.

Our direct connection with these artisans guarantees the museum-quality embroidery we have carried for over 25 years and gives these artisans freedom to continuously develop new designs for a living wage that they establish.
