sanchia playfair (sanchia845): handwoven cashmere

cashmere silk shawl
{ cashmere silk shawl }

hand-woven in pure bombyx silk and pure cashmere. plus it's hand-dyed in upstate NY, so you can request custom color combinations. not kidding! a luxe item, but around the same price (or less!) as machine-woven fancy-store kinds -- in fact, "bored with the uniformity and colors of industrially produced cashmere", FIT-educated sanchia playfair *apprenticed* (i love that word!) in chenille, designed her own dye process, and will hand-craft one to your heart's desire. check out her amazing hats and other wearables as well. yes, please!

  1. Gorgeous, oh!

    And I love that cropped jacket.

  2. I absolutely am in love with the idea of this as a gift for the bridal party. It would be such a beautiful and functional gift.
