Our cashmere shawls and stoles are limited edition items, handmade by artisans with techniques which have been handed down for generations.
Kaani is a traditional weaving technique from the area of Kanihama in Kashmir. It uses small wooden sticks or bobbins which are called “kaani” in the Kashmiri language. Each “kaani” stands for a colour in the colour-coded weaving pattern. These “kaani”-sticks are then interwoven. Depending on the complexity of the pattern, it takes months to finish one shawl. Kaani weaving is a dying art form and Pelagona is proud to serve as a platform for these beautiful shawls and, hence, preserve this heritage by collaborating with local weavers.
