The Hand-Spun Shawl

MONK’s crown jewel. The cloud-like softness this shawl exudes give it an air of British Royalty circa 1755.  Woven in a delicate, loose knit and requiring two weeks to spin a single spool of yarn, the Hand-Spun Shawl sets MONK apart as a handler of only the finest fabrics.

Meet your artisans

A veteran in our packaging factory, Pooja specializes in screen printing. Requiring a steady hand and eye for precision, Pooja’s team hand-prints the MONK logo on all of our signature boxes using a traditional mesh-screen printing technique. Viewing her colleagues as an extension of her family, Pooja still remembers how 12 years ago, as a young woman, she stopped by the factory to pick up her sister from work and left with a new job as a printer. Now living with her husband and five year old son in the Sundhara neighborhood of new Kathmandu, Pooja enjoys mingling with the traders at her local market and anxiously watching her son show off his most recently acquired skill, bicycle riding.
