Uttarakhand which literally means ""northern part"" is part of the Himalayan range, with Tibet on its northern border and Nepal on the eastern. In recent times it has become a centre for weaving and indigenous himalayan produce. We begin with the offer of some exquisite weaves from the Kumaun Grameen Udyog (KGU). This group has recently also experimented with blends using natural weaves. Their products include Shawls, Stoles, Mufflers, in pure wool and blended with Silk and Linen.
