The most popular patterns are with the classic Kashmiri embroidery - floral and paisley designs and on solid colors. These patterns are also run along the borders. Hand made with intricate designs, these were considered the luxury fashion accessory for the nobility.
The most elegant and light yet very warm is the Shahtoos (Shah Tosh or the fabric/garment/covering of royalty) shawl. These shawls are beautiful and warm as a plain woven piece or as exquisitely embroidered master pieces. These are very expensive and rare to find.
The woven types are very stylish to add a dash of patterns on plain ensembles. The patterns cover the entire length of the shawl or stole, in rich or pastel combination. The patterns can be worn on both sides in different color tones.
