“May this exquisite handwoven shawl envelop you
in its rich tapestry of culture and craftsmanship
through a beautiful collaboration between
AOD alumni Natharlea Yahampath from Sri Lanka
and Anila Preston of British Alpaca Fashion Exmoor in the UK.
The fusion of Sri Lankan craft traditions
using the finest of eco-friendly materials
with the inclusion of alpaca fibers, adorned with intricate pearl detailing,
capture the essence of ‘the pearl of the Orient,'
symbolizing the enduring bond between our nations.
May this shawl evoke fond memories of your time spent on our beloved island.
Enjoy the warmth and elegance it brings.”
