Description of Wool Stole Hand-loomed in Gujarat, India
'Art is nothing tangible...The art remains in the artist and is the knowledge by which things are made.'
(Ananda K. Coomaraswamy)
This beautiful thick large woolen stole is approximately 60 cm x 200 cm in size and is made completely from handspun yarn made out of natural white wool. It was created using traditional methods and the design consists of a delicate, repetitive linear pattern. The shawl can be worn by both men and women.
Rumi's Garden is honored to cooperate with a small supplier, from Gujarat in India, that works on a grassroots level to promote the handicrafts of skilled spinners, dyers, and weavers of local tribal communities. All their hand-woven products are environmentally friendly as they are made using natural fibers that are locally grown.
Maintaining Your Shawl
To maintain the shawl, hand-wash it with a small amount of mild wool/ silk soap or delicate non-biological wool detergent. Do not dry clean. Do not tumble dry. The wool softens after a wash and continues to do so with time.
