Shading can be an effective way to match a shawl in with your outfit. These shawls all shade from one end to the other - the pashmina is dipped by hand into the dye and then gradually drawn out. The end removed first is the paler version of the colour, and the end that is left the longest gets the more intense shade. This can be applied to the whole shawl for the self-shaded colours such as Turquoise to paler, or to part of the shawl (Black to White). The colours available are Café au Lait to paler, Black to White, Pewter grey to Silver Birch and Turquoise to paler.

Marine Blue 88 is a complicated intense shade that is not quite as dark or true blue as a royal blue or cobalt and has a whisper of green in it. Variations of this blue should be popping up in a/w 11.

Colours: Orange Juice, Turquoise, Fuchsia, Dark Aqua, Mid Grey, Blush Red, Shaded Turquoise to Rose Pink
When I was considering which of our stock to feature on our colour blocking feature, these chiffon shawls stood out. We've never had them online before and it will be interesting to see your reaction to them. They could become one of our classics, just as the ultra simple and wearable large shaded chiffons.
Very much a 'sari' style, the long edges are piped with organza; the two ends have a more substantial organza seal on both sides of the shawl. The organza is tonal and has an irridescence that adds to the wow factor of the piece.
