A pashmina is a piece of art – a fashion item that defines luxury, style and elegance in a timeless, majestic way.
Derived from the word “pashm”, which is a Persian term for wool, it’s made from interlacing fleece threads into a decorative textile of unparalleled softness and delicacy.
For centuries, garments made from this “soft gold” have been prized by royalty and passed on from one generation to another as ageless heritage that has thrived on emotions and traditions.
Buying a genuine pashmina is an investment for life, it is recognized globally for its beauty, hand-woven designs and value.
Its elegance and exquisite feel is heightened by the antique designs woven into it, which originated from the Kashmir crafts of pre-modern era.
The embroidery outlines delicate motifs and patterns which go well with any kind of ensemble.
Pashmina is a delicate form of wool celebrated for its softness and exclusivity.
Its goat – Chyangra or Capra Hircus, is an indigenous breed of Kashmir that sheds around 80–170 g (3–6 ounces) of fur coat every spring.
Their fleece is usually snowy, beige or silver and re-grows in winters. It is collected by smoothing goats’ hair with large combs and not by shearing, as is the case with other wools.
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.
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.
