Product Features
Working with Fair Trade certified organizations is an important part of what we do. This product is made by artisans that are fairly compensated for their skilled work, and helps provide a living wage as well as safe work conditions.

Against a body of teal and navy, colorful flowers dance under paisley clouds in a stunning jamawar from Sandeep Malhotra. So intricate was the work of an authentic jamawar that a person could finish only one shawl in his lifetime. Such shawls were not sold, but were given to kings and queens who, in turn, gave the artisan properties according to the worth of the shawl. Authentic jamawar is virtually unavailable, but replicas such as this recall their amazing beauty.

Artisan Information

Sandeep Malhotra

Shop all Sandeep Malhotra products

Hello. My name is Sandeep but friends and family call me Prince. I really don't know how I got this name, and I never bothered to ask, because I enjoy it.

I was born and brought up in Delhi, where I completed all my schooling, then earned a degree at Delhi University. While in school, I was the 'head boy,' so that was really cool. I had lots of fun, but I also had to take on many responsibilities.

My family has worked with textiles since 1968. In 1991, while I was still studying, I began to get involved in my family's endeavor. After graduating, I partnered with my family in our workshop. My father looks after the yarn spinning, and I handle the making of the textiles.

We design and create shawls, throws, stoles, cushion covers, table mats, curtains, and more. Some 30 artisans collaborate with us now.

It is a great opportunity for us to be associated with you. I hope that through this partnership, our family textile business will reach new heights.

The original jamawar textiles were made by hand. All the motifs were painstakingly done using needle and thread, and it took years to complete one shawl. Due to the intricacy and time it took to make, it was expensive and only the rich and royals could afford it. In Southeast Asia, it was considered a mark of royalty. It was not until the jacquard loom was invented in the late 18th century that jamawar become more affordable and more popular.
