He has been interested in Pashmina making and creation from a very young age. “I was enthralled to see the hand weave and the hand embroidery over a Pashmina, it felt astonishing” Iqbal exclaimed. To learn and ensure the preservation of Pashmina, he pursued to be a part of Pashmina himself by working over the handloom on his own. Now he is a professional artisan who works for his family's needs and visits the soul of Pashmina now and then. “It's all going well, I am enjoying my work of love, but I have a family to sustain and wages are so low that it's getting difficult day by day and that saddens me,” Iqbal said in a sob. Due to the ongoing machine embroidery, the essence of hand Embroidery is getting low wages as the demands are high. But as humans, authenticity matters.
