This muted grey striped throw is a completely hand-knitted offering made by proficient North Indian artisans. Hand knitting is a technique that involves the use of two needles to loop yarn into a series of interconnected loops to create a finished garment or any other type of fabric. It is derived from the word knot and has become a less necessary skill and more like a practiced art or hobby. The oldest knitted artifacts found are socks from Egypt in the 11th century. Since knitting does not require a loom or any other equipment it was valued by nomadic tribes. The origin of the knitting technique is believed to be somewhere in the Middle East and from there it spread to Europe. The origin or introduction of knitting in India is lost to history. Similar to other handicraft techniques knitting too has been industrialized, however, it has prevailed as an artistic expression and even adopted as a hobby in the 21st century.
