Pashmina gifts can be the most timeless and classic of all gifts you can present to your loved ones. Their grace, elegance, exquisite make, naturally beautiful colors, and a restful warmth can fill them with love and appreciation for you. Handmade gifts are in any case always better, but when a Pashmina, handcrafted by over 50 artisans is made with an extraordinary effort for years together, it shows the effort you put in choosing this as a gift and makes them feel more special and blessed.
What is Pashmina made of?
A common question that we are always asked by our customers and friends from around the world. And we have always narrated the same story of a Changthangi goat. It lives in Ladakh and grows Pashm to survive the harsh climatic conditions in Ladakh. But today, we want to answer this question in a different manner. Pashmina is indeed made of soft Cashmere wool from the Changpa goat, but it encompasses an abstract element that is not visible to us! Apart from wool, embroidery, and colors that fill a Pashmina with a refined charm and allure, it is LOVE which adds more to it.

Pashmina is made with LOVE
If it wasn't for the love of this art, an artisan would never tire himself beyond his capacity to prepare one square inch of a Kani shawl. Were it not for the reverence of traditions, craftsmen would never exhaust themselves beyond measure to work on the purity of their handmade pieces. If it wasn't for the honor of Pashmina, women wouldn't ever spin threads of 12 microns which leaves a weakening effect on their eyesight. Just because its makers have immense love for the craft, it is able to survive. Otherwise, in the present world, why would anyone do such a draining activity, over and over again.
It is simply loved that a Pashmina is made up by the artisans who are in their old age. It's the affection from women who even after tiring themselves from the daily chores manage to spin the Charkha during the late hours of a day. The same adoration comes from weavers, who could have woven a Pashmina over powerloom but for the respect, they have of the art, work for months together on a traditional loom so that the fabric comes out pure. It is a devotion from all over the world who cherish Pashmina and pine for just one Kashmiri Pashmina shawl. And we feel there is perhaps a no better way to show the same love than to gift each other the passion entangled in the weaves of a Pashmina.

Why are Pashmina gifts the best?
Apart from being a token of grace itself, that makes Pashmina one of the best gifts you could ever give to your close ones, there are a few reasons to do so.
When harsh cold seasons tend to deprive women of everyday comfort, it is the warm touch of a Pashmina shawl that gives them a feeling of safety and protection.

A timeless Pashmina gift will stay with them forever and remind them of your love and care for an entire lifetime.
Indeed Pashmina is a traditional heritage accessory which has been worn by Queens, Mughal kings, and the nobles of the past, but it has recently evolved to imbibe from the modern world chic prints and patterns. Now Pashmina is a versatile accessory that can be worn casually, while traveling, to the office every day, or a semi-formal or formal event.
