"Lovely scarves and incredibly speedy delivery"

" I ordered 4 scarves and they are beautifully crafted. Very fine, smooth and great quality. I’m originally from Dehradoon and now residing in Yorkshire England it’s almost a little piece of home. This was delivered from India to UK in 5 days I think. I was very impressed with that.

5 stars all round."

Courtney S., United States.

"Absolutely beautiful stole"

"The weaving on this is incredible and color so pretty. I wear it as a thick scarf but also use as a stole. My scarves from HW came to Colorado more quickly than things I had sent via US mail from California. I highly recommend all of their products; I love them :)"
Ashok K., India

"Surpassed expectations"

"I ordered it for my mom.. Quality is so good.. It's really soft and warm.. She's simply loving it..

Thanks Himalayan Weavers"

Our shop in Masrana (Mussoorie)

We live and work in a small village called Masrana which is outside Mussoorie town in the Himalayas. It is a beautiful and interesting area. Our house and dyeing workshop are on a ridge with a view of both the Himalayan peaks and Dehradun valley. Many of the villages around us are old and rich in the culture and architecture of the Garhwal Himalayas. Hope these photos will give you some idea of our surroundings.
