Our interpretation of the “little black dress”, this opulent handwoven wrap is the embodiment of simple elegance and artisanal tradition. A true go-to staple, you will never run out of ways or reasons to wear it. Crafted from the highest quality alpaca sourced from Peru (a country renowned for its alpaca heritage), along with the most exquisite Japanese spun silk.
Warmer than sheep’s wool, soft to the touch, and naturally hypoallergenic, alpaca is the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. Coupled with the lustrous sheen of the interwoven silk, this heirloom-quality piece makes for a stunning addition to your year-round wardrobe. 100% handcrafted by our local master weavers in our Main Street studio, including hand-knotted fringe.
This is a well made shawl and serves the purpose (warmth) quite well. I have the ivory version of this shawl, too. They are pricey, as hand made items are bound to be, but one has only to compare them with other shawls to understand it is worth the price.
