Elegant & warm Indigo color Kullu stole is one of the famous art works of the Himachali people for their elegant look, brilliant geometrical patterns and vibrant colours. A stole is a light woolen fabric draped around the shoulders and chest by women. This craft originally belongs to Kinnaur valley (the higher hills of Himachal Pradesh). In the later years, some craftsmen migrated to Kullu valley and settled here and introduced the craft of weaving to the people of Kullu.
The raw material used in Kullu Shawls/stole vary from merino wool, Pashmina wool and local sheep wool.Their elaborate designs and patterns bear a strong Central Asian influence and have a symbolic and religious implication. Basic colors used for the Kullu stoles are coffee,red, orange, pink, blue, green, yellow, black and white for patterning and white, black and natural greys or brown as the base. White stands for water, yellow stands for earth, red for fire, green for air and blue for ether.
