Tripe Layer Muslin Shawl in Yellow Rose
Traditional Nepalese pure muslin khasto with custom yellow rose block print.
Lahar Srijana is a women's collective that offers training in traditional crafts and then fairly paid employment. The khastos are made and printed by hand - even the printing blocks are hand carved.
Khastos are a triple-layered pure muslin shawl. The middle layer is block printed and the shawl is edged in patterned cotton. Khastos are beautiful, multi-purpose shawls that are perfect for the whole family.
