Matka Silk Shawl


A gentle and warm touch to the skin, these nicely handwoven silk shawls are made from Indian Matka Silk by Nepalese skilled weavers using a machinespun thread for warp and a handspun thread for weft. Using a twill weave makes the texture smoother to the touch.
The wonderfully textured surface is due to the nature of the hanspun silk thread.
