This shawl with usual dimensions : 6.8 ft length, and 3.5 ft breadth, woven of fine wool, named Tusha, perhaps for its tush or Shahtush like softness and rich look, wool’s thickness about sixty counts, and microns, about thirty-five, is a product of the hands of skilled Kashmiri weavers. It is completely hand-woven and the purity of the fibre is meticulously maintained. Soft as a new-born babe, it discovers all its beauty and excellence in its feather-touch like feel. Though not an expensive class of wool, and hence neither its product, it abounds in a Pashmina shawl-like aura and grace. A plain piece or adorned with embroidered patterns the beauty of a Tusha shawl is simply superb.

The Tusha wool is endowed with a strange ability to attribute to any colour immense depth and richness; hence, any colour is a Tusha shawl’s colour, though a deeper tint better befits the kind of wool a Tusha shawl is woven from, and in that it acquires a rich lustre and the most gorgeous look. Broadly, when plain a Tusha shawl’s beauty better reveals in deeper tint, whichever the colour, and when embroidered, the embroidered patterns shall better reveal against a lighter tint. Among plain Tusha shawls one with deeper tint has delightful contrast against the glowing fair complexion of a youthful maiden; and contrarily, a lighter tint is a senior damsel’s grace. Unsurpassed in beauty and elegance an embroidered Tusha shawl befits every age and every colour base.

In brief, a Tusha shawl – gorgeous and lustrous, is the luxury of a pocket with little money for it has the look of an expensive shawl whereas it is within everyone’s reach. A shawl for every age-group as a class a Tusha shawl is a weaver’s pride. The Tusha wool being quite soft and delicate special skill is required for transforming it into a woven piece, and hence, even in Kashmir there are not many hands able to spin it into yarn and weave it into a length. Obviously, a Tusha shawl is the craftsmanship only of a master weaver. The magic of a Tusha shawl lies in its close weaving and in retaining its fur-like softness – a feel of touching a young lamb or putting one’s hand on a pool of carded cotton.
