Handmade by artisans in the Himalayas of India, these high quality eco-conscious meditation shawls are the prefect accompaniment to your meditation practice.

Each item is woven on a traditional loom with the handspun yarn of the highest quality Himalayan Sheep's wool that is both soft and warm. The wool is strong and lightweight, therefore helping a meditator maintain a constant temperature throughout meditation practice. Woven Ahimsa silk, also known as peace silk, is sustainably sourced from Assam, its humane method allows silkworms to hatch, and the then empty cocoon is then collected for creating the silk thread. This particular silk is incredibly soft and adds an element of luxury to each shawl.

Each shawl is handwoven and therefore unique. The particular weave of these shawls is a beautiful Diamond design (image weave is Herringbone). The fabric of this shawl is in its natural state, and is un-bleached and un-dyed.
