About

Pashmina Handmade @ Nepal

Welcome to my Pashmina House!

All our Pashmina is handwoven in Nepal.
Pashmina is the Cashmere wool of the highest grade. Pashmina is probably made from the finest wool in the world.
Pashmina is a fine trendiest fashion fabric of this modern era. Pashmina wool is also known for the softest, most luxurious and the best pashm wool in the world.

Qualty you can feel!

Pashmina makes excellent accompaniment to a cocktail dress or other dressier attire.They can provide a good deal of warmth while still maintaining a refined and elegant silhouette. It can be worn folded over in a double fold end then wrapped loosely around the shoulders.

Pashmina is wool from the neck and belly of alpine goats that in climates with very cold winters and little vegetation; it’s 12-14 microns thick, as opposed to most other types cashmere, which is slightly thicker. After shearing the goat, the coarse hair is separated, spun, and woven, then washed and pressed.

The pashmina making process undergoes pain staking process and the entire procesdone completely by hand.The pashmina wool is collected every spring from the Mountain goat "Chyangra" (Capra Hircus). Pashmina is the goat's soft underbelly down, which lies under the coarse and thick outer hair. Each goat produces only about 3 ounces or 80 grams of pashmina wool each year. One woven pashmina shawl require wool from about three goats, and is basically spun by hand. The yarn is spun on a spinning wheel locally known as 'Charkha'. Hand-spinning is extremely painstaking and time consuming task. It requires immense patience, dexterity and dedication of experienced and expert weavers.

Dyeing is also done by hand. Dyers with immense patience and generations of experience are the one who dye the pashmina shawls, as even the smallest negligence reflects on the quality of the product. Only natural dyes are used, making the shawls completely eco-friendly.
