The Sycamore leaf pattern in this timeless scarf is a classic motif used by artisans in Kashmir.
Known in Kashmir as Chinar or Booune, the Sycamore tree was originally imported from Central Asia to Kashmir in the 17th century and over time came to symbolize Kashmir and now finds its place in many artisanal forms, including embroidery, papier machee, wood carving and metal work. In Fall, the deep green sycamore leaves bring life to grey skies as they change to vibrant reds, ambers and yellows.
The fabric for the scarf is a premium soft wool that is woven in Kashmir on old-world mechanized looms that produce about five-six scarves a day. They are subsequently hand-dyed and then the farmer-artisans in the villages embroider the motifs using patterns and skills that have been passed down the generations .
Apart from their elegance, the light weight premium wool provides warmth without being bulky, which makes them a handy companion for many seasons and occasions.

Le motif de feuilles de sycomore de cette écharpe intemporelle est un motif classique utilisé par les artisans du Cachemire.
Connu au Cachemire sous le nom de Chinar ou Booune, le sycomore a été importé à l'origine d'Asie centrale au Cachemire au 17ème siècle et au fil du temps est venu symboliser le Cachemire et trouve maintenant sa place sous de nombreuses formes artisanales, y compris la broderie, le papier mâché, la sculpture sur bois et le métal travail. En automne, les feuilles de sycomore vert foncé donnent vie à un ciel gris en se transformant en rouges, ambres et jaunes vibrants.
