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.
