Details

A Stunning rich blue colour embroidered pashmina shawl from Ledakh, Nothern India.

The cashmere for this piece was sourced in the May 2010 from Ladakh, Tsokar, from Tashi Tundup a pashmina grower with a herd of 100 goats. Tsokar, is high brackish lake area situated at 15500ft above sea level as is also known for world famous “black-necked” cranes which migrate here every year to lay eggs.  The cashmere is carded and processed by a cooperative society plan, renown as one of the best carding processors of India situated at 13000 ft above sea level in Leh. This plant was established by Government of India and UNDP with local government to provide a facility to the local communities.

Now the cashmere takes another journey to the valley of Budgam district of Kashmir for spinning at the spinning cluster at a small town called “Chrar sharif”. There are more than 50 women here, who hand spin the pashmina using the old technique of charka weaving. This complete process is governed by Nusrat Fatima who takes account of the complete process. She is among the best spinners of this town. 

The fine yarn now comes back to Hawal Mohalla, where its distributed to one of more than 200 weavers in the narrow lanes of Hawal, Botakadal, Reina wari, Hazaratbal, areas of Kashmir. Mr Mohmad Amin Kumar has more than 30 years of experience in weaving, working with his younger brother Javed Amin Kumar to create this beautiful fabric. The journey to finished fabric now requires clipping, dying, washing and pressing.  Mrs Zaida is the wife of Mr Amin Kumar does the checking and clipping of the final fabric. Now the fabric goes to Mr Fayeez Ahmad who dyes the fabric in his age-old dying plant where he still uses wood for the heating process. 

Now the fabric is ready for its hand embroidery. Mr Azaz Ahmad is a master craftsman who comes from Ghandarbal District of Kashmir and creates Sozni work learnt from previous generations. THis particular work is called Bail. This exquisite piece has taken over 100 days to create.

100% Cashmere Pashmina of 9.5 Microns.

Hand Spun and Handwoven. Twill Weave.

Yarn Count: 125 -145 

Embroidered with Cotton and Silk

One of the remarkable aspects of these shawls is that the embroidery has a very tidy almost identical pattern on the reverse of the shawl as on the front.

This shawl was photographed on our mannequin and has been very carefully treated and carefully re-packed.

If you would like to know more about these remarkable shawls, we highly recommend a book called 'The Kashmir Shawl' by Rosie Thomas. Although fictional, it is very detailed in where these shawls are made and the journey to make them.

The shawl will be presented in a gift box wrapped in hand dyed silk with silk ribbons.
