This elegant cotton & zari shawl features the techniques of both Khadi & Jamdani. First the cotton is handspun into yarn, then as the shawl is being handwoven, the artisan uses zari (gold plated thread) to create the embellished designs (Jamdani) set into the scarf, giving it an elegant hint of metallic shimmer.
Khadi is a type of cloth made entirely by hand, no power looms or industrial machinery is used. But khadi is so much more than simply a beautiful handmade cloth. It is an idea of cultural cultural self-sufficiency with deep roots in the Indian identity.

Fibre: 54% Zari (gold plated thread), 46% Khadi Cotton
