For the past two years, master craftsman Ghulam Mohammad Beigh has been doing Sozni embroidery on this Pashmina shawl.
Beigh, who hails from Zadibal in old Srinagar city, said it will take him a year more to complete the product. Stating that the shawl would cost Rs 3.5 lakh once completed, the award winning artisan says he works from 8.00 am in the morning till dusk every day.
While the artisan gets Rs. 3.5 lakh only after three years of hard work, the shawl can sell for double the price later in the art market.
