This richly-illustrated volume examines the remarkable Kashmiri shawls of the Walter Koelz Collection of the University of Michigan Museum of Anthropology. Part I presents the history, production, and forms and ornamentation of Kashmiri shawls, focusing on how the social contexts of the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries and the advent of the Jacquard loom impacted shawl development. Part II is a detailed descriptive catalogue of the shawls in the Koelz Collection. An accompanying CD-ROM includes color illustrations of the shawls in the collection, as well as a transcribed manuscript by Koelz.
