Pashmina comes from the Persian word pashmineh, which means wool in Persian. The Pashmina fabric is iconic to the beautiful valley of Kashmir. We design stoles and shawls in pashmina with the globally recognised GI certification.
The Pashmina wool comes from a distinct breed of goats found at an altitude of above 14000 feet in the plateau of Changthan in Ladkah, Kashmir. Our efforts are directed to provide optimum benefits to the women still practicing this craft despite the hardships.
