Pashmina : The Original Cashmere

One of the finest natural materials on the planet, pure pashmina is unique in both its look and feel. Behind its luxurious warmth is a story rich with history. The extraordinary skills required to source and weave pashmina have been passed down over centuries, from generation to generation. Few people know that Cashmere or Pashmina originated in the region of Cashmere (otherwise known as Kashmir) in the Himalaya Mountains. Pashmina comes from the remote Himalayan region of Changthang. Its source is the downy, winter undercoat of the Changthangi goat (capra hircus).
