The history of Pashmina spans over centuries. Kashmiri Pashmina shawls were first presented abroad over 700 years ago. And till date, these shawls have retained their value in the international market.
Here’s what goes into the making of the most exquisite shawls the world has ever seen...
The making of Pashmina involves collecting the fine hair of the Pashmina goat, sorting raw Cashmere, spinning, weaving and creating a world-class shawl. Indeed, the entire process is both extensive and thorough.
It demands a precision that is beyond many. And that’s why only a few businesses have been able to survive in the industry.
As an expert in Pashmina, we have a prowess in selecting only the finest of Chyangra’s hair.
All our fiber is hand-combed to maintain its quality & preserve its natural beauty.
Besides we ensure that no raw material comes from sources that violate human/animal rights
Cashmere is a delicate form of wool celebrated for its softness and exclusivity. It hence has to be woven manually so that the delicate fiber does not face the harsh processing of a machine.
For this reason, a handloom is used to weave fine Cashmere yarn, to prepare luxury Pashmina shawls, which takes 3-4 days.
THE LIVELY ELEMENTS
Conventional keepers of Pashmina goats are the tribe Changpa, who live in Ladakh region of India.
They are semi-nomadic people of Tibetan origin and inhabit the Changthang plateau.
Even with little or no access to mainland, these tribes have lived on their own for centuries, herding the goats whose pashm is the backbone of the entire Kashmir pashmina industry
