Art History

Mughal

The Kashmir textile industry was given great impetus under the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 1556-1605). The pashmina utilised in their weavings was imported from Ladakh, from which Kashmir had secured a monopoly, and the yarn was woven to form very fine shawls with 80 to 100 warp threads per inch. In the 19th century, these luxury shawls became a major export to Europe.

 

Description

Our shawl with its elegant shadow paisley design is adapted from a magnificent wool shawl in the Museum’s collection, woven in Kashmir about the middle of the 19th century. Wool/silk blend. Imported. Dry clean only. 74” x 28”.
