This handwoven jamavar wool scarf uses a floral palette of lavender, fuchsia, geranium, and rose to render the classic Kashmiri design. Lightweight and 100% wool. Handmade in India.

    Comments about Jamavar Wool Scarf:

    The colors of the actual scarf has nothing to do with what is shown here, which shouldn't have done by NG, right? I tried to attach a picture here, but was not allowed by the software. I am putting the picture on the NG/NGS Facebook page. You can see it there and judge it yourself. It is as different as black and white and if you see the picture, you will see if it is an overstatement.
    This was supposed to be a gift for a friend. The gift box I ordered and was charged for was in a worse shape with 3 broken corners.
    I returned it all and not even received a full refund.
    Absolute disappointment from a beloved institution.

      This is a beautiful scarf. The colors are just as pictured. I really like them. I wear this scarf as an accessory, but it also keeps my neck warm. My only issue is that I wish it were a little longer.

              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.

              Himalayan wildflowers bloom briefly during the mountain monsoon season. Hoping to catch a glimpse of the floral display, naturalists make the arduous and carefully timed trek through the Valley of the Flowers in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Here, amongst the rare blue poppy and cobra lily, wild varieties of flowers fill the expansive valley with waves of sunset colors. Locals are particularly fond of the small wild geraniums—called ratijari in Hindi—which are used medicinally and as dyes for silk.

              Maya weavers turn a new page on tradition by using sustainable bamboo fiber on their back-strap looms rather than the usual wool to create this extra-long, extra-soft scarf. The watercolor effect is created using a tie-dye weaving process called ikat. 100% organic bamboo. Hand-wash or dry clean. Hand-loomed by a women’s craft collective in Solola, Guatemala.
