All our shawls, stoles and scarves are handmade. They are dyed by hand in the Himalayas using a batch process, in which only a very small quantity of material is dyed at a time by hand. Once dyed, the material is used for making handwoven shawls stoles and scarves. The weaving is done in villages around us using traditional methods and simple looms. The families of weavers who work with us are traditional weavers who have been weaving for generations. Recently, with the introduction of power looms, they have been finding it difficult to compete and are facing difficulties. We are happy that Himalayan Weavers is able to provide much-needed support to weavers by making handmade shawls stoles and scarves.
The following processes are involved in the making of our products.
