Products

Pashminas have been a symbol of sophistication and royalty for all. Owning a genuine Pashmina is a dream for its lovers. Its elegance can transform any ordinary dress into a head-turner and can make anyone stand tall. Throughout history, kings, queens, and other nobility were the only ones who could afford to have shawls made from this ultra-luxurious fabric. So what actually is this luxury fabric, where does this fabric come from and where does it stand in the current scenario, we have tried to cover it all. Let us begin. The word Pashmina has derived from the Persian word “Pashm” which means soft gold. Weaving of Pashmina and making textiles from it can be dated back to as early as the 15th century in Kashmir when a Muslim saint Mir Ali Hamadani along with his 700 craftsmen visited Iadakh and there he found that the Ladakhi Chanthang Mountain goats produce a soft kind wool. The saint was so impressed that he made socks out of those and gifted them to the king of Kashmir Sultan Kutabdin and suggested that they should start a weaving industry in Kashmir. This marked the beginning Of Pashmina-making in Kashmir. The Pashmina fiber is obtained from a mountain breed of goats named Chanthangi (Capra Hircus). The goat can be found at an altitude of 15000ft across Himalayan ranges. To protect itself against the extreme cold, the goat develops the most luxurious wool in the world. And when the spring comes the same is shed naturally.

The goat rubs itself against the rocks leaving behind the fleece. If not done, the goat will die of the soaring heat. This fleece is then collected by the shepherds and sold worthfully. Approximately 80 —170 grams Of the fiber are collected from each goat and spun to produce Cashmere Pashmina. The sold wool then reaches Kashmir where it undergoes further processes Of making. The received wool is cleaned manually, spun on a traditional wheel called Charkha, dyed, and woven on a traditional handloom specific to it. At Ganesh Emporium we have the widest range of Pashmina Shawls. Please WhatsApp us for the catalog.
