Craft Stories:


The Pashmina textile has been known to have travelled through place and time. Some of its earliest known mentions can be found in The Mahabharata, where it earned the title of the King of all wools. Since then, it has caught the eye of many around the world, including Julius Caesar, Marie Antoinette, and Napoleon.

Pashmina is derived from a breed of Kashmiri mountain goat, scientifically known as the capra hircus. This breed sheds about 80-170 gram (3-6 ounces) of fibre every winter and the fibre is about 15 to 19 microns in diameter.

Creating pure Pashmina shawls, scarves, stoles, and more, is a time consuming and laborious craft as the material easily absorbs colours and prints. The dyes used are eco-friendly, so as to not harm the textile. The yarn needs to be hand spun, owing to the delicate nature of the fibre. Some embroideries, such as Jamawar, may take upto three years to complete.
