Pashmina Shawls

These beautiful, hand-woven stoles (large scarves) are made from the finest quality of pure Pashmina Cashmere wool.

The name "cashmere" derives from the Indian region Kashmir, where the first cashmere clothing was appreciated. Another very well-known term for cashmere is "Pashmina", that derives from the Persian word meaning "soft gold" and "the king of fibers" and has been worn by emperors for centuries.

This Kashmiri Pashmina is made from the Himalayan goat, known for its fine cashmere and is often referred to as the cashmere goat, and this rare breed constitutes less than 0.1% of global cashmere production, another example of its high quality.

The word "Pashmina" is sometimes used indiscriminately in descriptions. Many scarves made from synthetic or natural fibers are incorrectly sold under the name "Pashmina", thus creating a confusion in the market!

Our cashmere Pashmina shawls are 100% pure Pashmina because the thread fibers are finer than typical cashmere wool that are normally 15-19 microns and these are 12-15 microns in thickness.As the fiber diameter is very low, pure Pashmina must be hand-processed but mixtures can only be machine-woven with simple wool, silk, or acrylic.

No animals were harmed to create this material; the wool is not shaved off of the goats-- it is collected from shed fur on the ground and on thorns of berry bushes.

The approximate craft time of producing a single Pashmina stole or shawl is 180 hours.This higher value of Pashmina shawl is due to the quality of expert craftsmanship that goes into creating each shawl and the rarity of Pashmina wool.

We are the factory-direct supplier to many Italian, French, and British designers.
