Kashmiri embroidery on stoles draws inspiration from nature. Birds, blossoms and flowers, creepers, chinar leaves, ghobi, mangoes, lotus, and trees are the most common themes. The entire pattern is made with one or two embroidery stitches, and mainly chain stitch on a base of silk, wool and cotton: the colour is usually white, off-white or cream but nowadays one can find stoles in many other colours. Kashmiri stole makes it an ideal accessory to be carried on any special occasion. Colorful Kashmiri hand embroidery on the stoles makes it truly awesome.
