KANI SHAWL

Kani weaving is believed to be an art indigenous to Kanihama area of Kashmir which traced back to 3000 BC. The word ‘Kani’ – in Kashmiri – basically means a small wooden oblong spool. This rare craftsmanship is one of the oldest handicrafts of Kashmir. Since the Mughal era, this craft has been a daily part of the valley. The authentic Kani shawls are woven from the unadulterated pashmina yarns. This is made from pashmina on a handloom but with a small twist. Instead of a shuttle which is thoroughly used in regular pashmina shawls, Kani shawls use cane or wood crafted needles. The design is mostly typically identifiable intricate Mughal patterns, usually inspired by nature, of flowers and leaves, are woven into the fabric like a carpet, thread by thread, inch by inch based on a coded pattern called ‘Talim’. The talim guides the weaver in number of warp threads to be covered in a particular colored-weft. It is astonishing fact that, depending on the intricacy and complexity of the design being woven, an artisan can weave a maximum of one inch per day. Depending on its design, size and intricacy, a Kani Shawl may take anything between 6 and 18 months to be completed. The nuances of the workmanship and the amount of labor that it takes to create a single Kani jamawar pashmina shawl are more than any other handloom product. This is why they usually are more costly than any other traditional pashmina shawl in the market. The government of Jammu and Kashmir has granted a geographical indication ( g.i ) to the Kani shawl lately, making it illegal to sell shawls made outside of the Kanihama area as Kani shawls.
