A one of a kind masterpiece.  Three communities who have traditionally collaborated in their work and tribal cloth in the Kachchh Desert have worked on this shawl - the spinners and weavers, the bandhani tiers and the embroiderers.  This shawl has gone through many hand processes in the weaving and dyeing and then has been taken on migration with the semi-nomadic Dhabria Rabari as they journey with their herds to find greener pastures.  

The Dhabria Rabari have a distinct style of embroidery and applique and each woman imbeds a piece of her creative intuition and style into each shawl.

Please note: The embroidery on each shawl will vary slightly, to reflect the unique expression of the embroiderer.

Fibre: 75% Merino Wool, 25%Deshi Wool

Process:  Handwoven, bandhani tied (shibori) and dyed, and hand embroidered by village artisans in Kachchh, India
