Handmade traditional form fitted sámi silk shawl for my Sea Sámi kofte made with Asian brocade fabric traditionally used in buddhism. Lotus and vajra pattern in yellow and gold 😊 Turned out so nice, very happy with the result, it’s glowing in the sunlight 🙌 My kofte (gákti) is green, which will look amazing with the yellow 💛

Your shawl is gorgeous! What a beautiful combination of Sámi culture and Buddhism. 😊
May I ask about the origin of the pattern you are using? It is an unusual shape I haven’t seen before, and I would love to play with it if it is available.
Did you hand-knot your fringe, or purchase it pre-knotted?
Thank you so much! I love wearing it 🙂
The pattern for sewing it I bought online from a duodji shop. (Gavpi.com) 😊
I also bought the fringes from there I think. Would like to learn how to hand-knot though!🙌
