Pashmina | Eri silk | Kalamkari
Spoken for

This is a winter Sari, so I call it sardi.

Made with Muneer Shaikh’s family in Srinagar, this is a Pashmina Sari that is ideal for winters when you wish to feel special while also feel warm.

The weave carries a self diamond weave texture.

I have used Eri silk as border.

Kalamkari gently picks up the monotony of the natural shade of Pashmina. 

Eri silk fibre twist weave in the pallu is added to bring softness to the winter moments.

There is nothing much I should say about Pashmina. It is known thoroughly and communicated enough by the masters in the field.
