Checkered motifs in black and ivory are bordered by poppy red in this mesmerizing shawl from India. Karmabhoomi designs the shawl, diligently handweaving it in the jacquard technique from pashmina cashmere. Lightweight and warm, pashmina cashmere represents an old cultural tradition from Changthang. It is collected by nomads from domesticated goats, which grow long hairs under their fur to protect against the cold weather there.
