Handwoven Kalamkari Sozni Weave Kashmiri Valley of Flowers Shawl
Khinkhwab brings you Pashmina shawls from the heaven of earth Kashmir. SOZNI is one of the most sophisticated forms of Needle Embroidery in the world. This extremely fine, delicate, and artistic needlework is only practiced in Kashmir and has no parallels anywhere else. Pashmina is from Changthang, Ladakh. Pashmina shawls are made from Cashmere wool, which grows on the body of the Changthangi goat found in Ladakh. The goat is found over 14000 feet and is reared by nomadic herders of Ladakh.
Fabric – Semi Pashmina
Semi Pashmina is a mix of wool with silk. Wool and silk is blended together to get the same soft feel and warmth. With the addition of silk, it gives a light sheen to the final product
Craft - Kalamkari
When it comes to Pashmina shawls, artisans from Kashmir too imbibed this beautiful craft in pure Pashmina shawls. After painting Pashmina shawls with Kalamkari, artisans here hand embroider around the motifs in black. This is another step, in addition to the 23 steps of Kalamkari. After motifs are hand-painted onto the surface of the shawl, a matching or contrasting thread is chosen to outline these motifs. This too takes a lot of time, as Kashmiri Sozni Kars (artisans specializing in Sozni Kari), give attention to each detail and each motif closely. The final result of a Kalamkari and Sozni rendezvous is simply beyond comparison.
