Waziristan is in the Northeast province of Pakistan, a remote area bordering Afghanistan. The local weaving tradition often combines silk and cotton in striped designs. Weavers usually design these textiles to have dark indigo cotton ground stripes alternating with colorful silk and further bright silk accents. Makers will sometimes add some embroidery to the finished textile. Waziri shawls are worn by all genders.

Keep in mind ...
Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
