Wool and silk blend shawl, 'Blue Paisley Garden' (India)

Woven from a blend of wool and silk using a complex jacquard technique, this shawl is beautiful, with soft blue tones and paisley designs. Indian artisan Sandeep Malhotra crafts this shawl using a power loom to recreate the painstaking jamawar weaving process, which once took months to complete by hand using needle and thread.
