Trace back: Series no 3001 of oversized pure cotton stoles made with traditional hand loom weaving techniques and crafts still practiced by master artisans in the desert of India. Sustainable cotton stole made with crafts protected under geographical indication 174 given to unique handwoven textiles of Kachchh.
Power Pashminas are generous sized stoles made of 100% pure pashmina fiber combed by hand by Kashmiri artisans. Luxurious soft, highly insulating, these Kashmir Pashminas are extremely lightweight - an 80"x40" pure pashmina stole weighs only 250gm!. Decadent Power Pashminas make for a perfect gift - they come in a protector bag and a FREE premium duck canvas reusable bag - all priced under CAD100. Their sales help us build artisan communities that create reliable employment in rural areas for farmers and continue inherently sustainable crafts.
Trace back series no 2001: Handwoven pure pashmina - possibly the gentlest armor against harsh Canadian winters. 82" x 28" woven by skillled master weavers in Kashmir, India, using the wool of two mature Pashmina goats that are sheared in spring. A Pashmina goat can produce up to 8 ounces of wool per year. That combined with the diminishing art of hand weaving make it worthwhile to purchase a skillfully handwoven Pashmina that lasts forever, revives dying crafts and becomes a cherished family heirloom.
Trace back series no 1003: subtly patterned white-on-white pure wool stoles. As if achieving such a striking design with a single shade of yarn wasn't demanding enough, the artisan unleashes more hidden power from his entire family of craftswomen and men with his own contemporary take on an otherwise very ornate regional mirror work.
