Blue and Bronze Double-Sided Ornamental Shawl

$ 140.00

The richness of a subdued blue meets the reflectiveness of copper in this lush double-sided shall from 7 sisters. The ornamental designs seem to make it ripple as it is wrapped about the neck and shoulders.

Meticulously made through the traditional technique “Ala-kiyiz,” the artists combine delicate, airy silk with two layers of felted Kyrgyz wool. Once the design is patterned the felted wool is cut and layered onto the silk. It is then rolled and immersed in soapy water to adhere to the silk. Finally, it is dyed to give it its color.

Dimensions: Approximately 74" x 24"

Care: Dry clean only


"People buying our products carry with them a part of our culture and the warmth of our hands, love and blessings." - Farzana Sharshembieva of 7 Sisters, Kyrgyzstan
