Purzameen shawls are completely hand-embroidred and are usually formalized imitations of nature like leaf, flowers, and tree designs and these are always done in rich colors like deep mellow tones of maroon, dark red, gold yellow, brown, and many more.

The characteristic kashmiri design, the mango-shape, is known as Paisley. The Paisley design is so ubiquitous that it is difficult to realize that its many years old. It had evolved from 1600's floral and tree-of-life design.
Kashmir Purzameen Shawls are high-fashion garments, and the importance of these shawls in fashionable women's wardrobes has always grown with time.
