These beautiful shawls are handmade and dyed in Nepal by a Sherpa and Tibetan family that lives in Kathmandu. 'Water' shawls are a 50/50 blend of silk and pashmina, which makes them even more versatile due to their lightweight and soft nature. They keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer! Pashmina is valued for its amazing texture and soft fibers that come from goats raised in the Himalayas. The warp and filler threads in these shawls are sometimes contrasting colors, which makes the shawl have a shimmery look that can look different from various angles.
