Cherry Red Himroo Shawl
This is truly an heirloom shawl. Himroo is a technique of handweaving that was patronised by the royals of India since the 13th century. However, over the past 2 decades it had struggled to survive and was almost extinct. LoomKatha started the Himroo Revival Project in 2019 and has succeeded in training a small group of women to weave as well as re-created some vintage Himroo designs.
This shawl is made using a traditional design called "Batashe Ka Jaal" inspired by the Batasha (dessert) moulds of olden times
At present, all our Himroo shawls are woven on pre-order only. You will receive your shawl within 3 months of placing your order. We will send you regular updates on email.
This shawl is 2m long and 34" wide
Dry clean only
An easy way to care for your shawl is to steam iron it on silk setting after wear, saving it from frequent washes
