Kani Shawls are a tradition of Kashmir, its rich design and heritage is classic and evergreen. It is made from Pashmina on a handloom but instead of a shuttle used in a pashmina shawl, it is made using cane needles. Depending on the complexity of the pattern it may take from 6 to 18 months to make one shawl. Kani shawl is woven by using small wooden spokes in the place of a shuttle as in a traditional loom. The spokes are called ‘tujii’ or ‘Kani’ locally. Kani shawls have been produced from fine hand spun Pashmina and santoosh fibers.
