Snow white and forest green meet to create an accessory that reflects a natural beauty. From Sandeep Malhotra, this shawl is woven of wool and embroidered by hand with intricate floral and paisley motifs. It is inspired by India's legendary jamawar. embroidery. So intricate was the work that a person could finish only one shawl in his lifetime. Such shawls were not sold, but were given to kings and queens who, in turn, gave the artisan properties according to the worth of the shawl. Authentic jamawar is virtually unavailable, but replicas such as this recall their amazing beauty.
Sandeep has embraced his family's textile endeavor and has been instrumental in its growth. Today his family's workshop provides others in his neighborhood.
Sandeep has two children. He is deeply committed to caring for them while he strives to provide them with the best possible education.
Sandeep supports his two children.
