Centuries ago, Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic cultures met and mingled in Kashmir as artisans from Central Asia and Iran settled in the area. One of the many exquisite arts for which this area is known is the intricate chain stitch called ari, which served as the inspiration for our timeless 100% merino wool shawl.


Hand-embroidered in India. Approximately 24 x 74".


Dry clean.


In Himalayan Kashmir and northern India, chain stitch embroidery is a refined art, worked using cotton, silk, or wool. An awl-like hook called an ari is used instead of a needle to create a refined ''cobbler's stitch,'' which allows the craftsman to cover a larger area of work in a shorter time. This is one of the reasons why ari embroidery often covers large areas, if not the entire body, of the textile or garment it adorns.


Royal women in Kutch, in northern India, were major patrons of early ari artists, and commissioned work covered in typical Persian motifs of peacocks and flowers. So delicate are some of the best examples of this embroidery that the most intricately adorned fabrics are said to be ''under ari's spell.''

In just a century since they first appeared, the textured wool sweaters of the Aran Islands have become “as tenacious an international symbol of Ireland as the harp and shamrock,” writes fashion historian Deirdre McQuillan. It wasn’t until the home crafts movement at the end of the 19th century that Aran’s distinctive patterns became known around the world. Today, from tourist shops to fashion shows, one can find sweaters based on stitches that were invented by grandmothers and great-grandmothers only a few generations ago.

Our handsome herringbone-patterned wool scarf is designed and woven by a husband-and-wife team in their County Clare workshop, using an antique Hattersley Domestic loom from the early 1900s. These narrow machines, made in Yorkshire, England, of cast-iron, leather, and wood, are especially suited to weaving scarves because they create two naturally reinforced selvedge edges, rather than the cut and sewn edges found on industrially woven scarves.
