Product Description

Shawls have been a part of the traditional Russian Women’s costumes since the 18th Century.
100% wool

The original home of the shawl was Kashmir in India. In the 19th century, Russian manufacturers introduced worsted weaving yarns and began producing their own garments.

The most well known Russian shawls are those made in Orenburg. Russians, that settled in Ural Mountain, needed something very warm, able to withstand Russian winters.

Many people ask what kind of material (wool) is used for knitting Orenburg shawls. Authentic Orenburg shawls are made of goat down. People in Orenburg area breed species of goats that give not only milk but perfect soft and light down.

Goat down shawls are durable in usage. The more shawl is used, the more attractive it is.
Every shawl is unique.
