Shawls History, Evolution and Types of Shawls Popular Today

Shawls seem to find their origin in Kashmir. Ladakh homeland of the Pashmina goats is where the Pashmina Changthangi goats produced the fine hair. In the 14th century  Mir Ali Hamadi took some of this goat hair as a gift to King of Kashmir, Sultan Qutabdin and suggested starting a shawl weaving industry using this special soft fine wool. UNESCO pointed out in 2014 that Hamadani was a historical figure that shaped the culture of Kashmir especially the arts and crafts industry which impacted Kashmir’s economy. From Kashmir the knowledge, wealth of many woven products namely Kashmir Shawls were then passed to the world.


Historically, woven shawls in India were worn right from the Indus Valley Civilization a statue of a priest-king in Mohenjo Daro showed a draped shawl. Kashmir shawls were found as early as 3rd century BC – 11th century AD but the actual Pashmina Industry started with ruler Zayn-Ul-Abidin of Jammu and Kashmir who introduced weavers from central Asia. This ruler and Hamadani were great contributors to the flourishing of Pashmina weaving industry. The Pashminas were symbols of status even passed on as dowry during weddings at that time.

Pashmina and Cashmere both come from the Changthangi breed of the Capra Hircus  goat. In some countries the term is used interchangeably often. Pashmina is said to be finer only 12-14 microns in diameter great for shawls whereas cashmere can be 15-19 microns in diameter perfect for fine warm scarves. Originating from Jammu and Kashmir  there was later a surge in Pashmina Industry in Nepal. The pashmina yarn is so fine it was handspun and 100% pure pashmina shawls were made. They were soft, warm, light but very protective and took over the world market. Women loved that they could be light fit into their handbag and yet offer great warmth. Machine made Pashmina later on took over and many yarns could be blended in factories to produce a wide range of shawls for different seasons, different textures, colorful weaves and shades of colors to customize and match a dress for the fashion conscious woman today. Pashmina and silk shawls have become a craze especially as they are more durable and have a sheen for evening shawls that women love. With time women demanded shawls at lower price points so Pashmina seems to have become a brand name. You will see big department stores in the USA, Europe, Middle East sell rayon shawls or viscose shawls under Pashmina brand name. If you want an authentic pashmina try buying one that is made in India, Nepal or Inner Mongolia.

Pashmina production is a time consuming process from collecting goat hair that is shed in spring. It is noteworthy that the goat’s under hair is combed out not sheared. This raw hair  from Changthangi goats was sent to Jammu and Kashmir for weaving process.  The shawl making process of combing, cleaning, spinning , weaving, embroidering involved many skilled weavers and craftsman. At that time the approximate time to make a Pashmina was 180 hours. Now it takes a very short time to machine manufacture them in bulk.


The pashmina product can be a 12” x 64” a scarf, 26” x 76” a shawl or a large cape wrap that is typically at least 30” x 80”. The shawls come with a 3” fringe or some have a half inch eyelash fringe others are fringeless. The shawls are mostly rectangular but there are also square shawls folded and worn as triangular shawls and many other shapes. The embroidered designs, the skillful paisley weaves are marks of a high level of expertise that the weavers had. The Pashminas were very expensive but the longing for pashminas was worldwide not everyone could afford them. Thereafter in 1812 in Paisley Scotland the paisley shawls started with the handloom, in 1820 they became a cottage industry and with the introduction of the jacquard loom they moved into factories to be mass produced in many colors. Now they were priced lower and supply was abundant. This did however dilute the original Pashmina which was a prized possession from Kashmir. It was the increasing demand that was responded to by manufacturers to produce the varieties and blends there are today. Some varieties that are popular are water pashminas, modal shawls, ring shawls,  pure pashminas and silk pashmina so consumers get a great choice.

Today shawls of all kinds are in demand Cashmere Pashmina, wool ,silk, chiffon, lace, net metallic shawls to add a touch of elegance to any dress. Consumers want seasonal shawls. So chiffon silk shawls as well as 70% Pashmina and 30% Silk shawls are popular during spring/summer and the warmer wool shawls are perfect for fall/winter weather. Shawls mostly come from India, Nepal, and Inner Mongolia. India has beautiful paisley shawls and the solid Pashmina from Nepal are so popular worldwide. Inner Mongolia today has highest amount of raw cashmere yarn which is exported to sustain cashmere industries worldwide. Today’s consumer demands a variety of shawls to match the different dress fibers and with a light sheer texture for warm weather shawls and  soft protective warmth for cool weather. There are so many yarns and blends made by manufacturers to satisfy the multitude of demands in texture and price points that consumers want. The consumer demand has dictated supply as the shawl Industry struggles to survive. Craftsman in India still continue to produce works of art and shawl masterpieces.
