In Kashmiri, Kani means ‘small sticks’, essentially wooden spools, or BOBBINS, which are used to weave each colour in separately, thereby creating the famously meticulous patterns;
Kani a technique also known as interlocking twill tapestry, because the warps and wefts are set in a diagonal structure on the loom

Kani

Kani shawl is made from pashmina on a handloom. But instead of a shuttle used in regular pashmina shawls, Kani shawls use needles made from cane[4] or wood.[5] The distinguishable, Mughal patterns, usually of flowers and leaves, are woven into the fabric like a carpet, thread by thread, based on the coded pattern called ‘Talim’. The time guides the weaver in a number of warp threads to be covered in a particular coloured-weft.

Families who are in weaving Kani Shawls usually work patiently, working between 5 and 7 hours a day, in between attending to their household chores. Depending on the intricacy and complexity of the design being woven, an artisan can weave a maximum of one inch per day. Depending on the design, size and detailing, a Kani Shawl may take anything between 6 and 18 months to be completed.
