The wonderful trees which surround my studio are illustrated in this shawl. The soft fine fabric from India was woven in a small family company of three generations of weavers in Bhagalpur – and Mukesh is proud of their work . The shawls are like a dream to wear – they don’t crease and feel as light and as warm as air. This piece is painted in soft greys, pinks, red, coffee and vanilla on white   – all the colours are slightly muted because of the cashmere.

Wash by hand . Measurements are 206cm/83″ by 75cm/30″ Cw42.6
