Europeans loved the beautiful shawls imported from Kashmir, but few people could afford them. This demand helped advance the Industrial Revolution: Scottish manufacturers in Paisley created cheaper alternatives on looms with Jacquard attachments. Our Kashmiri Shawl re-creates traditional Kashmiri designs with lace patterning.
