Himroo is an age old weaving art of Aurangabad,when Muhammad Bin Tughlaq shifted his capital from Delhi to Aurangabad in 14th century A.D. The hand woven Himroo fabrics were used to serve the Royal family. Since then this art has been preserved by the Qureishi family for generations. The Qureishi family is the only descendent left who have preserved this precious art of Himroo establishing the Aurangabad Himroo Industries and skilfully developed products such as Kham Khab, which is marvellously woven with Golden and silver threads.
All the Himroo shawls I sell have been hand-loomed in exquisite patterns by weavers living near Aurangabad in Maharashtra, India. It takes about three days to hand-weave a Himroo.
They are reversible and made from 50% cotton and 50% silk threads (gold and silver) which give them a luxurious and exquisite shine.
This is the first quality of Himroos, the plain ones, they weigh about 420 grammes of 15 oz and are available with flower designs in a ruby or ebony background.
