Very classic and simple design hand embroidered pashmina is made with the finest most sublime baby cashmere woven with 10% silk to add that extra touch of light warmth and luxury. The drape and feel of this shawl are beautiful; the fabric is as light as a feather and sublime to touch. The raw cashmere for this piece was sourced in July 2018. Baby cashmere has a limited supply, so this was collected from various herds in Ladakh.
The Embroidery for this exquisite shawl was done by an accomplished craftsman, in the Ganderbal district of Kashmir where hand embroidery is an age-old tradition. Delicate and intricate embroidery in white thread on a chocolate brown cashmere and silk background. Once the embroidery is finished the shawl is carefully checked and washed in crisp Himalayan water.
Baby cashmere fibres are from the first combing of a baby goat, it is even softer and finer compared to the cashmere from an adult goat. The cashmere is collected in the summer, combed out carefully by hand from the young coats when the weather is hot.
The precious baby pashmina is then gently washed, carded, and de-haired entirely by hand. The baby soft pashmina is then spun by hand, a traditional craft in Kashmir taking a skilled and experienced craftsperson one month to spin 100 grams of pashmina yarn.
Presented in a beautiful solid wooden box, handcrafted in Srinagar, the same region where the shawls are created. These boxes take approximately 21 days to create from the cut wood to drying, carving, polishing, and finishing.
