About Pashmina

The pashmina is the optimal of fibers which are obtained from certain species of goats. Thanks to the cold temperatures and high altitude of the Himalayas, the quality of wool produced by the goats ensures one of the finest and softest textiles in the world. Their are several different qualities of pashmina but the dry climate in the high mountains allows the goats to produce a unique softness and incomparable quality of wool. The goats that live in elevations higher than 4,000 m are groomed to yield the longest and silkiest of hairs. Those fibers are then sorted and cleaned by hand and brought from the Himalayas to the valley. The hairs are then spun by hand and woven very carefully following old ancestral traditions on a manual hand loom.
