Pashmina - The ancient grandeur weave of India
With the onset of the winter season, it’s time to embrace warm woollen apparel. Pashmina, a fine wool from the chilly chimes of India is an exuberant wear when the temperature drop. It not only keeps you warm but is stylish and skin-friendly, thereby creating a lasting impression. It also has always been the desire of women for its a symbol of luxury and elegance. This extraordinary artistry has been passed from generation to generation.
Pashmina comes from the Persian word Pashm which means wool, whereas, in Kashmir, it is referred to as raw unspun wool. It is a fine variant of spun cashmere from domesticated Changpa goats.
It’s time to go back and learn more about this unbelievable alluring craft form that has captured the hearts of people throughout the globe.
Pashmina is a type of wool from a particular breed of goat that is found at the higher altitudes of the Himalayan region (13000 feet of sea level). The fur of these goats are collected by combing, unlike the technique of shearing, which is used for other animals to collect the fine wool. The goats grow a thin inner coat of hair that helps them cope with the extremely harsh winter season. This inner coat of hair is used to produce pashmina. This coat of hair is sheded by them during the spring. It is durable and comforting to the human skin during the temperature drop. (source: Prem Singh Jina (1996). Ladakh: The Land and the People.
