Cashmere Glam

Our cashmere shawls and stoles are limited edition items, handmade by artisans with techniques which have been handed down for generations.

Shawls and stoles have a long tradition in India and are given as gifts for special occasions such as weddings. They are cherished like jewellery and similar to jewellery, they are works of art in their own right which can take months or even years to make. Pelagona is proud to contribute to preserving these art forms by having these special pieces in the store.

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.
