yak wool shawls

n recent Kashgar news, winter is upon us here in Australia and so our thoughts turn to warmer matters: scarves, shawls and of course blankies.  We have just received a shipment of beautiful yak wool shawls and blankets from Nepal, still very well priced at $39 and $59 respectively and in all the colours of the rainbow, from French provincial stripes in shades of red and honey to bold single colours in deep blues, tawny browns and forest greens.  They are machine washable and actually improve in softness with time.  These never last long so come on in or give us a call to secure the colours you want.

We are also running a stocktaking sale at the moment, with many of our furniture items reduced to make way for our new container arrival in July, the result of our recent buying trip to India.   We have a whole new range of beautiful jewellery in store right now, with many of our pieces already added to our on-line catalog (visit Latest Finds for a quick preview) and more jewellery arriving soon from our designer in India.  In the new container you can expect to see some fabulous pieces, including a magnificent hand painted ceiling panel from a Krishna temple, huge brass and iron studded courtyard doors complete with frame (a remarkable piece, the best we've ever had), two almost life size Rajasthani theatre puppets, gorgeous sideboards and cupboards inset with old teak door fronts, a selection of new bedspreads and cushion covers, dowry boxes and blanket boxes as well as some lovely antique textiles from Gujarat.  See you soon!
