This shawl and a Tibetan woven textile started my love of Himalayan textiles when I was still a teen. My teachers Kamala and Jhoti wore these beautiful hand woven shawls over their saris in Kathmandu in the most elegant way. I asked where I could find them to make a gift to my mom and sister and they took me to meet an old Nepali weaver who made them one by one on a hand loom. These beautiful shawls are still perfect after 35 years!
