From luscious blossoms to traditional designs, from colours of spring to earthy, muted hues, Wool Sutra’s hand-painted stoles are virtually akin to draping oneself in art. Whether used to accessorize a western outfit or to enliven an Indian salwar kurta, these gossamer soft stoles in silks, chiffons and georgettes make the perfect accompaniment.
As we are aware, India is a land known for its artisans and handcrafted creations since historical times and Indian embroidered apparel, cottons, silks, besides spices and other goods were exported regularly to Europe, especially during the 17 th and 18 th centuries. It was only after discovering the potential of our great nation that the British Empire colonized our nation owing to its repertoire of wealth and artefacts.
Wool Sutra’s Kalamkari and Papier Mache shawls are perfect examples of handcrafted pieces of art, continuing an exemplary tradition of rich and delicate hand embroidery. It would be interesting to point here that an artisan spends as much as several months to create a papier mache shawl, such is the intricacy and deftness involved in the process.
We take immense pride in each of our hand embroidered or hand painted stole or shawl, which carry our distinct signature, a mark of impeccable quality. Their timeless appeal and versatility to blend in with every outfit and every occasion is what renders them a class apart.
As American essayist Chuck Klosterman, writes, “Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.” Through our collection, we try and meet up to all demands and special requirements of each of our valued customers.
