Many of you must have seen the beautiful shawls previewed by Luxury Wichita named "La Femme aux Semelles de Vent"
These shawls were made to celebrate Alexandra David- Neel, a most famous French explorer who traveled all over the world but is probaby most well known for her experiences in Tibet where she became a Tibetan Lama. She wrote extensively about her experiences and her biography and bibliography can be seen on this site:

I hope you enjoy finding ou about her as much as I have.

Sorry for the typo in the title it's "vent" and not "vant".

I found out on another thread, it's believed to be Aline Honore.

The shawl portrays her outside Lhasa, the forbidden city. What a great way to honour a marvelous woman! Like Duna, I love the scarf even more now that I know a little about her.

Ditto everything you said, Polaremil. I thought the shawl was gorgeous and now knowing the history behind it, makes me really, really want it.
