Against a body of teal and navy, colorful flowers dance under paisley clouds in a stunning jamawar from Sandeep Malhotra. So intricate was the work of an authentic jamawar that a person could finish only one shawl in his lifetime. Such shawls were not sold, but were given to kings and queens who, in turn, gave the artisan properties according to the worth of the shawl. Authentic jamawar is virtually unavailable, but replicas such as this recall their amazing beauty.
Sandeep has embraced his family's textile endeavor and has been instrumental in its growth. Today his family's workshop provides others in his neighborhood.
Sandeep has two children. He is deeply committed to caring for them while he strives to provide them with the best possible education.
Sandeep supports his two children.
"Its not just a shawl, its a work of art!"
I bought this to give as a Christmas gift. Having seen it, though, I almost hate to give it away. Fortunately its going to a good friend. The design, colors and craftsmanship are beautiful and the fabric is wonderfully soft. Its not just a shawl, its a work of art.
