Beautiful Pashmina Shawls Origin and Present day Demand for Pashminas

Pashmina is one of the finest natural fibers that is shed by the Capra Hircus Himalayan mountain goat and is collected for hand weaving it into pashmina shawls & scarves in Nepal, Tibet, India and Inner Mongolia.  The goats that are found in these Himalayan mountains at approx.  14,000 ft. surrounded by great winds and freezing temperatures have this very delicate soft warm under fur.  The word "pashm" means wool in persian and the word pashmina denotes that soft warm light wool. The longer overcoat surrounding the goat surround the under fur keeping its soft delicate beauty intact.  The Indian Maharajas and Maharanis i.e. Kings and queens used to wear elaborately handcrafted Pashmina shawls as at that time it was treated as a prized possession.

Today with the huge demand pashmina factories for mass production have been set up and in addition to hand woven shawls the shawls are machine made but retain the fineness, color & beauty. Good thing is now they are more affordable and every woman wants a pashmina or a couple to enjoy. The cashmere pashmina wool in 2 ply (ply being a layer of yarn used to make the shawl) is great for spring. Silk pashmina shawls are ideal for summer and in fall a 3 ply Pashmina wool shawl provides protection from the cold and in the cold winters the 4 ply pure pashmina wool shawl is a must have.

The jamawar style Pashmina with hand embroidery is the post popular. Inspite of political struggles Kashmir has kept its Pashmina industry alive and thriving. The local Kashmiri artisans and weavers have unsurpassed expertise in shawl making and handwork.

It is noteworthy that after a flowering plant appeared in the courts of a moghul emperor that became renowned and used to embellish these prized shawls in Kashmir and other places.  The sought after paisley motif was an emblem of royalty and beauty. The mango shaped Paisley design was founded here and the paisley pashminas were hand woven heirlooms. Thereafter paisley handlooms from Paisley Scotland took care of the bulk demand for these shawls. They became mass produced and more affordable.

Raffel, Papier Mache, Aari embroidery are some examples of intricate hand embroidery still used on pashminas. The handwork is very involved and par excellance.
