Classic and versatile, our wraps and shawls are Niela's favourite designs of all
Is it any surprise that a designer with Indian and Scottish heritage—who lives in Shetland—would be smitten with shawls and wraps?
The simplest of garments, a wrap or shawl can be worn in varying climates to protect from weather, the gaze of others or just as a comfort blanket on a difficult day.
Shawls and wraps can count amongst our most treasured pieces of clothing. We might wear them on special occasions, or every day—a faithful friend.
Some of our customers wear their shawls in a more modern way, as a really big, voluminous scarf. Others pin their shawl a more traditional arrangement around the shoulders. Many of our wraps are asymmetric, making them comfortable to wear and interesting to look at.
Oh—and if you’ve ever wondered where the words shawl or wrap come from (in Shetland the Scots word hap is still used), you can read our story about Niela’s love of wraps and shawls, and the origins of the word shawl.
