Journey of the Pashmina
The journey begins at 14,000 feet of elevation in the high Himalayan mountain ranges where the elusive Kashmir goat can be found.
Pashmina is the finest type of cashmere fiber. The first textiles were made from it in Kashmir. The name comes from Persian: پشمینه / pašmina, meaning "made from wool" and literally translates to "Soft Gold" in Kashmiri language. The fiber comes from three breeds of the Pashmina goats; namely the Changthangi or Kashmir Pashmina goat, the Chegu, and Chyangara or Nepalese Pashmina goat.
Kashmiri Master Artisans have inherted the secrets of the legendary Kashmir Pashmina shawls. They are the only ones who can hand prcess and spin this fine fiber into a purely desirous weavon pashmina shawl.
