About Pashmina

Pashmina is a fine type of cashmere wool. The textiles made from it were first woven in Kashmir.

The name comes from Persian "pašmina", meaning "made from wool". Pashmina came to be known as 'cashmere' in the West because Europeans first encountered this fibre in Kashmir.

Pashmina fibres are finer and thinner (12–15 microns) than generic cashmere fibre (15–19 microns)[12] and therefore ideal for making lightweight apparel like fine scarves.

Woolen shawls made in Kashmir are mentioned in Afghan texts between the 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD.

Pashmina shawls have been worn by the royalty and the elites in the region for centuries.

The exorbitant price of a real pashmina shawl is due to the amount of expert craftsmanship

that goes into creating each shawl and the rarity of the pashmina wool
