When you think about shawls, what image comes to your mind? I’ll tell you what comes to mine-
“Dull shades, or unimaginative embroidery on slightly bright shades. Necessity to drape over Indian wear in the winter, but spoils the look of the whole outfit because you’re all covered up in it.”
What if I tell you I found the perfect place to buy shawls from? A place where the shawls are pretty, in bright hues, and are embroidered with such gorgeous work that they pair up perfectly with that sari of yours?
Let me introduce you to Janavi! I’ve spoken about them earlier on the blog (when I visited the Vogue Wedding Show) and I am absolutely in love with what they do. Three words describes their work perfectly – original, stylish and elegant.
Ok, enough with my words. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
1. These are my favourite shawls from their wedding collection that was on display at the Vogue Wedding Show (they’re priced upwards of INR 15,000).
What I loved about them? The bright shades. The impeccable embroidery that you won’t usually find on shawls. And how super soft the material felt in my hands, courtesy the luxurious quality of pure cashmere all their shawls made of. You WILL fall in love.
2. Delicate stoles and shawls with Chantilly lace borders that can even be used in the summer – when you’re at a restaurant or a movie theatre where it tends to get chilly.
3. Stoles with colorful needlework and playful motifs – to add some fun to your accessories collection.
In Delhi, you can visit their flagship store at DLF Emporio or find them at Aman Hotel and Evoluzione Kila. They also retail in Mumbai, Amritsar, Rishikesh, Kolkatta, Chennai and Jaipur. International retail locations include London, Milan, Japan and USA. Visit their website for more details.
