‘Pashmina’ name evokes a thought of shawls woven in style and splendour. The crowned princess in the arena of woollen garments, Pashmina is unanimously voted as the best woven shawl across the globe. The name comes from Persian word Pasmina meaning made from wool. They came to be known as ‘cashmere’ in the West because Europeans first encountered this fabric in Kashmir. The wool comes from a number of different breeds of the cashmere goat. These shawls are then hand spun and woven from the very fine cashmere fibre. Pashmina fibres are very thin and light and hence shawls woven from it are extremely light weight yet very warm. Worn by the royalty and elites for centuries they are a pride addition to the woollen section of any woman’s wardrobe. Not only the art of weaving Pashmina remains a legacy, but the gratification of owning one is also an heirloom to be passed down generations. The rarity of authentic Pashmina wool and the amount of expert craftsmanship that goes into creating each shawl makes this a possession to cherish.
