Fresh from Kashmir (in Himalayan region). Hand spun and hand loomed. Light, soft and silky. This is 100% real pashmina made from only the softest downy undercoat that grows primarily on the neck and belly of the Himalayan mountain goat, Capra Hiracus. It is only the animals living above 4500 meters that produce the finest wool.
Most of the pashmina in western world is machine made, either a cheap imitation or a mix of various fibers.
These pashmina scarves are part of a project that was initiated to create sustainable livelihood for the Kashmiri artists, as well as raise awareness of real pashmina in the West. Due to extremely fragile nature of the hand spun yarn, each pashmina can take up to four days to hand weave. The result is a beautiful soft and light yet strong scarf. You have to feel to experience the true luxury :)
Price: $145 per scarf. (Will last generations with care). No machines used ever.
