ARTWORK SUMMARY








Kashmiri Shawls: From Punjab to Paisley (Slaves of Fashion Series)



The region of Kashmir in northern India was known for fine shawls.  Kashmiri weavers used the wool of mountain goats, still known today as ‘pashmina’ or ‘cashmere’. Shawls made of cashmere were soft, warm and beautiful. From 1770 onwards, fashionable women in Europe wanted one:  the ultimate status symbol. The hand weavers of Kashmir took over a year to make one shawl.  They were costly. Soon, makers in Russia, Scotland and France set up factories to copy the Kashmiri originals.  Mass production made shawls cheaper and allowed more women to wear them. The figure in this artwork is dressed in traditional Russian costume. She holds a shawl made in Russia, inspired by Kashmiri shawls. Flowers in the background and border of the artwork symbolise the countries where shawls were made. The camomile daisy at the top of the artwork is the national flower of Russia.
