"Hearing stories about my grandfather, growing up, always made me feel like I wish I had known him. My grandmother kept a collection of things he loved, like fountain pens and perfumes heโ€™d collect from all over the world. They were so unique and antique. But my favourite thing was this shawl, it was from one of their family trips to Kashmir and he got this beautiful shawl which was hand embroidered in Kashida embroidery. Iโ€™ve always wanted to visit Kashmir ever since..."
