A large, kani jamawar shawl from India. The intricate, woven, pattern is inspired by designs that date back to the Mughal Empire. As late as the 19th century, jamavar shawls from India were hand woven using a twill tapestry weave with interlocking weft threads. The bobbins holding these threads were called kanis, and the shawls themselves were sometimes known as kani shawls. The hand weaving of that type of intricately designed, jamavar shawl is no longer commercially viable, since one shawl would take a craftsman months, or even years, to complete. However, these contemporary kani jamavar shawls are woven on automated jacquard looms so that the shawl motifs are more crisply defined, and a kani shawl will usually incorporate a larger number of colors than a jacquard jamavar. In order to do this, the weft threads on a kani shawl are carried along as floats on the back side of the shawl and are only woven in when their colors are required. When the weaving is finished, the float threads are cut away by hand. This hand cutting is a time consuming process and accounts for a substantial portion of a shawl cost. Because of the way they are woven, kani shawls are not reversible. D12-KL-6041
