Pashmina comes from the Persian word for wool, known in the West as cashmere wool. Cashmere derives its name from the old spelling of Kashmir. The origins of pashmina in Nepal date a long way back, when the people of Nepal had to depend on the fabrics they wove for easy travel, warmth and especially survival. The threads used in making this luxurious cloth come from the underbelly of the Himalayan mountain goats, called the Chyangra which live in the in the high regions of the Tibetan Plateau and Nepal. The goats were blessed with a very unique, thin and short inner hair, which gives them the best insulation from the harsh climate. The people living in these temperate regions found the threads to be quite useful and not to mention, comfortable. Thus was born the pashmina we know and love today.
Pure pashmina shawls are made from 100% pashmina wool, and are typically hand-spun and hand-woven by skilled artisans. The process of making a pashmina shawl is time-consuming and requires a great deal of expertise. The wool is first collected from the goats during the spring molting season when they shed their undercoat. The wool is then hand-spun into yarn, and woven into shawls using traditional methods.
