Tibetan Collection Cashmere and Silk Shawl

The Tibetan Collection
INSPIRATION
For centuries, belief, art and daily life have combined into a unique and beautiful world of design in Tibet. Our inspiration are the chests used to store valuable and spiritual items in the homes of the high Himalayan plateaux. Images feature Buddhist Purifiers and Protectors, Naga Spirits and traditional motifs.

MEANING
Protectors are also Purifiers, we combine Mahakala (Bhairav in Hinduism) with water elements or fire elements. Nagas, or Tibetan Dragons, are powerful protectors who can control the weather and fight negative spirits. Tantric spirit protectors guard against malign ghosts and the Tibetan Garden is a blissful place to mediate and centre yourself.

HANDMADE
Distinctive, natural and elegant, we believe perfection is developed from years of practice. Mirror in the Sky hand-felted cashmere products make a distinctive statement about quality and workmanship. For us, the ultimate expression of nature’s perfection is best achieved through the hands of an artisan. Each product in the Tibetan Collection goes through hours of refinement and processing. For one shawl, the felting process takes four women seven to eight hours and the total production time is more than 20 hours. All of our felting products are made by an ethical women’s cooperative in Kathmandu. With over five hundred female staff, the factory is one of the most inspiring and pleasant places you could ever want to visit. Picnic areas, free child and adult education, and open, airy production work-spaces are full of lively chatter and happy smiles.
