Kashmiri needle work embroidery

Featuring yet again, another salwar kameez. I am very fond of Kashmiri embroidered suits. They are so intricate, hand embroideries, carefully crafted. The suit that I am wearing below has needle embroidery which is done only by artisans of Kashmir. It has the same embroidery that is done on pashmina shawls. It has intricate motifs of Chinar leaves (the leaves and trees that grow in Kashmir). They resemble the Maple leaves.

If you like wearing Salwar Kameez (suit), a kashmiri suit is a must have in your wardrobe. Also Scarves, stoles, mufflers, shawls look exquisite and complete the look of your attire. If you are looking to buy Kashmiri shawls, stoles, scarves, mufflers, jackets, suits, etc, the best and most authentic place to buy them in Delhi or in India is-

Kashmir Shawl Emporium
94, MM, Janpath, New Delhi, India
# 91 11 23321783
Open Monday to Saturday.

They also have pashminas, cashmere, silks, hand woven, Jacquard etc. They are the biggest manufacturers, exporters, wholesalers, retailers of shawls, etc.


  1. That is a beautiful outfit. My wife loves them so much and when we hang around in the mall these Kashmir guys drag my wife into there store to make her buy stuff. I think these guys knows very well by looking at them who buys and who dont. If I walk around alone they never bother me. But, if I go with my wife they are after us :)
