Pashmina Shawls

Pashmina, made from the fleece of the Pashmina goat (capra hircus goat), are the finest Cashmere wool in the world. This shawl is an exclusive product of the mountainous regions of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pashmina wool is gathered and hand loomed with silk, to produce Pashmina shawls. These shawls are noted for their durability and sheen to the fabric.

This unbelievably soft luxury shawls are woven on traditional throw and catch looms by hand. It normally takes 4 to 11 months to complete the embroidery on these shawls.
