REPAIRING & WASHING
SHAWLS

Gently remove excess dirt & fiber by brushing gently with a hand or a soft brush. Hand-wash your pashmina products using lukewarm water with baby shampoo or gentle soap. Be sure to dissolve the shampoo completely in the water then open your shawl and put the pashmina shawl into water. Let the shawl soak for 10 min in the water. Rub your shawl gently within the water.

Rinse the shawl by hand until the soap is washed away. Do not twist or wring the shawl. Place pashmina products on a white towel and roll up together to squeeze out excess water. Place the pashmina products on a flat surface and lightly stretch it to its original shape. Allow the shawl to air dry completely. Once dry you may lightly steam iron your products keeping light fabric on them.

EMBROIDERY & RE-DESIGNING
ALL KINDS OF EMBROIDERY

The first thing that comes to our minds when we think of Kashmiri garments is the intricate embroidery that adorns them. Whether it is Pashmina Shawls, Dress materials, Kaftans, Kurtas/ Kurtis, Sarees or even bags, the signature Kashmiri embroidery is what sets all Kashmiri apparel apart.

Types of Kashmiri Embroidery

The Ari or Crewel Embroidery

Even though its origin is unknown, it can be traced back to as early as the medieval period. This kind of embroidery is locally known as Zalakdozi. It is a very old technique but also very popular. The crewel embroidery makes use of a pointed crochet or an ‘ari’ as the needle.

This form of embroidery can be done on cotton, wool, silk, velvet as well as other fabrics. This embroidery can be commonly seen on curtains, drapes and other upholstery, bedding, dress materials etc. Woolen or art silk thread is used for this particular embroidery. Mostly, the chain stitch is used for the crewel embroidery. Popular designs for this embroidery include flowers, blossoms, leaves, creepers etc.

The Sozni Embroidery

This form of embroidery is quite different from the aari embroidery. A needle is used in sozni embroidery. The Sozni embroidery can commonly be found on shawls, jackets, dress materials etc. The work that goes into this embroidery is very intricate.

Popular motifs for this embroidery are abstract geometric designs, paisley patterns. The Sozni embroidery is exclusive only to Kashmir and cannot be found anywhere else. The satin-stitch is used for making this type of embroidery.

The Tilla Embroidery

Another type of Kashmiri embroidery is the ‘Tilla embroidery’. This kind of embroidery is done with golden or silver threads. It is mostly done on the Kashmiri traditional garment called Phiran. But now, it can also be commonly seen on shawls and sarees. The beautiful tilla embroidery adorns ethnic wear and gives it a royal touch.

This classic type of embroidery is a true epitome of grace and class. Initially, real gold and silver were used for the embroidery. Only the rich could afford this luxury back in the day; making it super popular among the royals. However, now, just gold and silver-colored threads are used.

The Amli Embroidery

The Amli embroidery makes use of multicolored threads. It is relatively a new type of embroidery. This embroidery is mostly seen on the kani and jamevar shawls.

Over to You

Thus, it can be said that Kashmiri embroidery is an art that requires utmost dedication, patience and precision. Initially, only men are involved in the embroidery process in Kashmir. A son inherited this art from his father. But now, since the last few years, women have started participating too.

It takes years and years’ worth of practice to master this art. Most men who are involved in this profession usually begin practicing early, around the age of 9 or 10 and then work up their way to expertise. It is due to their hard work that this traditional art form is still so well-preserved and recognized all around the world.
