The fine silk featured in this exquisite light-weight shawl has been handspun and handwoven by village artisans in Bengal. The result is a multi pattered design with an elegant lustre.

The art of handweaving in Bengal is an ancient tradition. In some villages, one can hear flying shuttles of handlooms as you pass each and every dwelling down a village street. Maiwa works in collaboration with village artisans to encourage longevity of the ancient art and also commissions pieces and materials that can be made in no other way.
