The Cashmere Shawl

The Cashmere Shawl

A chapter on shawls from Harper’s magazine December 1850 is available online. It describes the Cashmere shawl as “ A garment capable of appearing the most feminine and graceful in the world.” The article is a from a fashion spread of the day, is beautifully illustrated, and explains how the shawls were produced and from what fibers they were made. I think many will find it charming and informative.
