Shawl

Designs from Kashmir influenced generations of British and French shawl makers. The intricate design on this shawl is known as paisley, which evolved from Kashmiri boteh (flower) patterns. The vivid, hot-yellow centre clearly identifies its European origin and the fine weave, delicate wool and details suggest a Fran├žais manufacture.
