Also, it is said that objects of religious importance are weaved on these shawls with colours of mythological origins. The colours used on these shawls are related to the five elements and there is a slight change in the belief here.

The green colour signifies air element, blue signifies ether, white signifies water, yellow stands for earth and red stands for fire. People can find the central Asian influence in the geometric designs of these shawls.


The manufacturing and designs of these shawls are so unique and famous that the government has issued registration for this shawl under the provisions of the geographical indication of the goods act in 1999 which in turn issued prohibition of unauthorised production of this shawl, if found violated a 2 lakh punishment or 3 years of imprisonment shall be the action taken.

These shawls are woven for the local usage for commercial purposes and they are woven with frame loom, pit looms etc.

There are various types of patterns woven in these shawls such as Kinnauri teen Patti, Kinnauri pattern along the both ends of the shawl, all over Kinnauri work and Kinnauri pattern running across the four edges. These shawls serve the dual purpose of function as well as ornamentation.
