Description

In the early 19th century, luxurious shawls from Kashmir became indispensable accessories for the fashionable European woman. Once such lavish Indian shawl (third quarter of the 19th century) in The Met collection is evoked by this elegant ruana design.

The original shawl is a finely woven jamawar, a long shawl woven in wool and silk as a single piece. Created from high-quality cashmere, the laborious process required to weave the borders and center as one piece would have added to the expense of an already high-end textile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shawl This is a beautiful and quality shawl. The back is long, but you can pull it forward where the back is not too long. I'm 5' 2" tall. The reverse side is a beautiful dark green (like you see on the edging of the picture shown). Like a forest with a bit of teal - but just a tiny hint of teal in it. It love it. It will be great any time of the year, but especially pretty for a Christmas shawl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not quite what I expected Bought this at Christmas this year. The colours aren’t exactly what I expected but it is a lovely garment. It’s not exactly reversible because the dark Loden green side has a raised covered seam at the neck, that the oyster coloured side does not. Heavy weight garment, cozy for colder days and nights.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but big I bought this last Christmas: beautiful color and pattern. But, since I am on the short side, 5'3", and not thin, the style wasn't so attractive on me, way too long. Others might not have that problem. I really didn't take the length into account before I bought it, most ruanas are pretty long. On the plus side, I prefer them to shawls because they are easier to keep on. I kept it and wore it a couple of times, but will likely gift it to someone taller. The quality was good, just not the right style for me.
