Did you know that your personalized pashmina shawls have a long history? Pashmina products have been around since at least the 3rd century BC. Shawls from the region of Kashmir (where “Pashmina” gets its modern name) are mentioned in ancient local texts.
Pashmina has been worn by Kashmir royalty and gentry for centuries. In the 1800s, the woolen Himalayan material started making its way to the West, where it was thought of as an exotic luxury. Hand gathered from a special breed of goat only once per year, pashmina is equated to cashmere.
Today, custom pashmina stoles offer a stylish taste of faraway lands and a glimpse into other time periods. Pashmina shawls are known for their bright colors and softness. A pashmina product is a statement piece, and a wardrobe staple.
There are different types of pashmina. There is the natural type, shorn from mountain goats. Then there is synthetic pashmina, which is more affordable.
