Treat your self to the most luxurious scarves in the world! For centuries, ladies have treasured the beautiful hand-embroidered shawls from the idyllic Himalayan valley of Kashmir. The techniques have been passed down through the generations and now you can comfort yourself in the soft luxury and exquisite needlework of our pashmina shawls and stoles.
The elegant hand-embroidered pashmina shawl is a masterpiece of Kashmiri artistry! Nestled in the foothills of the Indian Himalaya, Kashmir is the original source for cashmere, hence the name, that was then exported to colonial Britain. Kashmir became famous for its soft materials as well as its rich designs and patterns.
This scarf is made from the soft hair of high altitude Changthangi goats from the Ladakh region. Skilled Kashmiri artisans then sew silk thread into intricate designs onto the pashmina, taking months and years depending on the design. Lastly, each scarf is signed by the artisan in silk thread as a seal of authenticity.

Shibori is an ancient dying technique that has been practiced for centuries by artisans in India and Japan. The process starts by dying the cloth in pomegranate, followed by stitching or wrapping thread through and around fabric. The fabric is then dipped into a dye, such as natural indigo. The stitching resists the dye, thereby creating fabulous designs on the cloth. The secrets of this craft has been passed down through the generations and to create an outstanding design takes expertise in stitching as well as the dying process.
Fabric: 100% Organic Cotton

Care: Fabrics with indigo tend to transfer color. We recommend washing before first usage to remove any surface dyes. Wash separately or with darker colors. Gentle machine wash recommended. Do not dry in the sun to avoid bleaching.

These amazing Color Pashmina scarves are handmade from the finest quality cashmere in the world. The famed Pashmina, or Changthangi, goat was at the heart of the cashmere trade that started centuries ago in Kashmir where 'pashmina' literally translates to 'soft gold." Cashmere is made in many places around the world. The secret to pashmina is that it only comes from this special goat that lives high in the Ladakhi Himalaya.
Today, these light brown and cream goats wander the high elevations of the Indian Himalaya with their 'Changpa' herders. After spending the winter above 13,500 feet, they bring their goats down to the valleys in the summer and comb out the under fleece from their herds. The herders sell the raw pashmina to specialized craftsmen who comb, spin and weave the fibre by hand using traditional methods.
Our Color Pashmina scarves are 100% knitted pashmina and all ten colors are rich and luxurious. These authentic pashmina scarves will add a touch of luxury to your wardrobe.
