The Pashmina goats on the high altitudes of the Himalayas, are gifted by nature, an extremely fine inner coat of wool, which is several times finer than the human hair and extremely soft, in order to brave the harsh freezing weather. The size of each strand is so small that it can only be hand woven. This “Pashm’ or wool that is available, if blended, with silk or cotton can then be spun, by handlooms or machines. The Pashmina Silk fabric is a blend of two fine materials which together produce a fabric that is sheer, light and shining. The Kashmiri embroidery or Kashida, as it is known as, employs bright and colourful designs, with motifs of floral borders, paisley and chinar leaves and other inspirational settings of nature. The patterns and the colours chosen, so harmonize with Nature, that the elegance and allure of the wearer of the salwar kameez is heightened. Pashmina Silk is known for its feel and the spreading warmth, and it takes a discerning ability to recognize a true Pashmina product, since the manufacture of synthetic fibres have now come into vogue.

The beautiful cream and green Pashmina silk block printed salwar suit has green and black block prints as horizontal strips. The salwar is green silk with black dots block printed on it. The chunni is green pashmina silk with black colour dots all over and black colour block printed line borders. This very charming piece would serve for parties, weddings, social occasions, festivals and many other occasions.

The light coloured blue pashmina silk salwar suit with plain blue pashmina silk kameez has beautiful zardozi embroidery on its border. The silk salwar is also plain blue with a few zari strips distributed horizontally. The dupatta is also a sheer blue with zardozi embroidery at the ends. A simple elegant piece, it would suit almost any occasion for its sheer rich feel.

Some people believe Pashmina from Nepal are the best in quality because of the conditions to which the mountain goats have adapted over centuries. The high Himalayas of Nepal has a harsh, cold climate and in order to survive, the mountain goats have developed exceptionally warm and light fiber which may be slightly coarser and warmer than cashmere fibers obtained from lower region goats. Nepali pashmina is called Changra Pashmina. But the fact is, Ladakh pashmina is also similar to the Nepali pashmina as the Ladakhi pashmina is produced in similar high altitudes of chanthan on the India\China border at Kashmir. There we find very cold temperatures, and the climate is very supportive to the pashmina producing types of goat. To survive the freezing environment at 14,000 feet altitude, it grows a unique, incredibly soft pashm (inner coat) six times finer than human hair. Because it is only 14-19 microns in diameter, it cannot be spun by machines, so the wool is hand-woven into cashmere products including shawls, scarves, wraps, throws, stoles etc. for export worldwide. Pashmina is the name given to it as Iranians came to Kashmir via the routes of Drass Ladakh, and found it very soft and tough in quality. Pashmina is the word "pashm" meaning wool, so we can compare the Ladakhi pashmina with original Nepali pashmina. Kashmir pashmina has been famous for centuries due to its quality and products like plain pashmina, woven jamawars, embroidered pashmina.
