Pashmina shawls and scarves:
high fashion that never fades

Today, even luxury is mass-produced. Hence, giving unique, stylish corporate gifts requires a little bit of digging into fashion history. If you’re seeking the ultimate high-end accessory as a corporate gift, why not consider pashmina shawls? Traditionally woven for Kashmir royalty, pashmina scarves and shawls are of the same quality as cashmere.

This soft material is hand-collected in the Himalayas from a type of goat found nowhere else. A luxury in India and Tibet since the 3rd century BC, pashmina stoles and shawls first reached the West in the 19th century. Furthermore, they caught on like wildfire amongst the elite.

Fast-forward to the present and pashmina has not lost its appeal. Indeed, celebrities often wear this fabric on and off the red carpet. Think pashmina shawls and scarves are just for women? These accessories are also a fashion staple for men. Only difference: women’s scarves have tassels and men’s have fringes. Even Brad Pitt and David Beckham are fans of pashmina scarves!

How pashmina shawls add a personal touch to your branding

Tasteful and timeless, pashmina apparel helps boost any visitor experience. Recently, Monsoon Corporate Gifts worked with the Grand Hyatt in Houston. Monsoon designed custom pashmina shawls to keep hotel guests warm in the air conditioned room.

ICAO, a United Nations agency, gave personalized pashminas scarves with their logo to visiting dignitaries. In both cases, the accessories serve a practical purpose, while growing brand recognition.

The wool comes directly from Kashmir, India, and no harm is done to the goats in the collection process. Clients can choose from many different colors. (See sample color chart below for details).
