Our handwoven 100% cotton Jamdani shawls are truly versatile! They add a touch of color to your summer outfit and can be used in a number of different ways: Draped over your shoulders on a cool night out or to protect you from the sun.
What makes Jamdani special is the supplementary weft technique applied to create the design. It is a lengthy process requiring a high level of patience and skill and watching these artisans working on their handlooms and pausing the weaving process every few seconds to separately weave each line of our motifs into the shawls, is truly captivating.

Meet the makers - An interview with Vaidesh - An artisan working with one of Artha Collections' artisan partners on the embroidered home decor and personal accessories collections. When we received our latest order from The Hand Embroiderers of Tamil Nadu
we were really happy with the clean and efficient way in which it was done. We learned that Vaidesh, a young artisan slowly taking on more and more responsibilities within the association had led the production from start to finish. We wanted to sit down with her and ask some questions about her life within and beyond the community.
