Along with the breathtaking landscape, the mountainous Kashmir region is world-renowned for its master weavers. Local artisans evoke the region's inspirational gardens in this traditional multicolor wool shawl. Swirling floral patterns decorate a background of earthy colors and surround a central field of semisheer black wool.


Please note: This shawl has been one of our biggest photography challenges. Although we rephotographed and color-corrected it for our print catalog, we appreciate that some customers have been disappointed by the discrepancy between the shawl as pictured and how it looks when worn. We updated the photography again in January 2013 for improved color accuracy and revised our online copy, and we plan to photograph the shawl on a model as soon as possible to better illustrate how the black area of the fabric looks when it's worn across one's shoulders. For additional questions, please contact our customer service department at 1-800-437-5521.


Comes in an organza gift bag. 100% wool. Dry clean. Made by artisans in India. Approximately 29"W x 84"L.

        Shawl was a gift, so I can't comment on uses, but I was very pleased with it as a gift for just about anybody's taste.
        I had read the other reviews, so I wasn't at all surprised when the actual colors had very little to do with the picture. The colors were different and much more muted than as depicted. Had I not read the reviews, I would have been very dissapointed. As it was, I knew what to expect and was very pleased.

        The design is lovely and the weight is nice (not too bulky) but.....I was extremely disappointed with the colours. The photo is about 50% to 70% brighter than the actual scarf (i.e. the green is really a dark dull olive colour and not the nice green in the photo) There are huge sections of plain black which is not really shown in the photo and the colours are not just darker but much more greyed. Not sure why the misrepresentation by NG. Too much hassle to send back so I will keep it.

              A beautiful color palette means this can be folded to accent the other colors you are wearing. It smelled pretty bad but I washed it in scented moisturizing shower wash (great for woolens) and hung it to dry, and now it smells quite nice.

                    The picture in the catalog is beautiful, a light tan color, almost sand colored in places. When it arrived, I was so disappointed to see a very, very dark shawl with no bright highlights. I could not wear this dark color. The quality of the shawl was good and the fabric of good quality.
                    I am returning it.

                          Comments about Himalayan Heirloom Shawl:

                          After reading the comments, I really hesitated to buy this shawl. But the price was so good I couldn't resist.
                          When it arrived, I was delighted. The colors are beautiful, even prettier than the photograph. Black predominates but it has nice bright colors to add interest. The design is WOVEN, not printed on. It is wonderful under or over a jacket or coat, it's light weight and easy to carry and wear. In a pinch, you can put it over your head to keep off rain or snow.
                          I work as a photo-journalist in criminal courts every day, and the room temperatures are very unpredictable. This shawl is the prefect thing to carry with me. If the room is especially chilly, I can double it and pull it close; wear it loose for average warmth, and if I don't need it I can fold it and put it in my bag.
                          And it's also beautiful for an evening out.

                          This shawl has a somewhat chemical smell to it, so it's now hanging to air out the odor. The material is thinner than I expected, so I will reserve it for warm weather use when I just need a little something on cooler evenings or in the office. Overall, I like it. I'm a big girl, and it's plenty long and wide enough to go around me and then toss over the shoulder, too.

                                            Wore this with a grey dress at an outdoor fall wedding and it was lovely, perfect colours with grey and black accessories. Part of the paisley is almost sheer, which lightens the wool and keeps it from being too heavy.
