23 years ago I travelled to India and discovered in Aurangabad the Himroos which are hand-woven shawls made from silk and cotton.
I had never heard of them and never seen them in France or the United Kingdom. I tried to buy some more in Europe but came to the conclusion that it was impossible to buy them in Europe.
So three years ago, I went back to Aurangabad in India to look for those gorgeous Himroos as they are exquisite shawls and really unusual and beautiful to wear.
Overthere I discovered and bought a magnificent collection of beautiful hand-woven or hand-loomed scarves, stoles and shawls from silk, pashmina wool and cashmere by Indian weavers from the region of Aurangabad in Maharashtra.
If, like me, you love handmade accessories from natural noble fibres such as silk, cotton, wool or cashmere, then browse "1001 silks" and travel with me to India for a few minutes.
You will discover, want to treat yourself or simply buy as an outstanding present among these exquisite accessories.
I'm certain you'll find something both stylish and cosy to keep you wrapped up in the cold or to wear for a special occasion.
Your feedback, positive or negative, is welcome.
Thank you and happy browsing!
