” For centuries pashmina is a symbol of luxury. Because of its rare elegance the cashmere shawl was used as royal gifts in the old kingdoms of the Himalaya. Because of the rareness of the cashmere wool and the fact that everything was made by hand, pashmina had a extraordinary value. Untill this date the cashmere shawl remains to be a rare product. In the early years of export the supply of the cashmere shawl couldn’t even match the great demand from the West. ”
To understand what makes our shawls so special we must go back to the origin of the pashmina scarf. In the mountains of the most impressive mountain range on earth, the Himalayas, lives under harsh conditions the Hircus Capra goat.
To protect itself against the extreme cold temperatures at 10.000 feet altitude, it has the most insulating and softest fleece in the world. In Spring, the softest hairs of the belly of the goat are combed and spun into the finest cashmere wool.
Each cashmere pashmina is made of this wool and you might now have a better understanding why the cashmere pashmina feels so incredibly soft.
In Nepal, the cashmere thread is carefully woven and colored by hand. This happens under good working conditions and the Nepalese weavers receive a fair salary for their craftmanship. The manual processing from combing the hairs unto weaving the pashmina makes each pashmina unique and gives it its astonishing beauty.
FinestPashmina.com is created from years of love for Nepal. During a 5 months stay in Nepal, mainly while conducting development projects, we were completely grasped by the Nepalese culture with it’s beautiful people.
