Pure Pashmina Stole from Kashmir - Paisley Jacquard Stripe Weave - Natural White, Taupe, Beige **SOLD No Longer Available
Limited Edition Pure Pashmina Shawl with a distinctive Paisley Jacquard pattern subtly woven throughout the heritage Kashmiri soft stripe design (see detail images). This Pure Pashmina wrap has been fully hand made in Kashmir with fibers hand sourced by pashmina experts in the vast region of the Tibetan Plateau which includes Tibet proper, Ladakh, Lahaul-Spiti, and Kinnaur. Origins of the legendary real Pashmina are spoken of by many, but known by few, and this heirloom quality Stole size wrap is an amazing testament to the artistry of Kashmiri shawl designers and weavers. Each shawl in this rare series took many months to complete, with only a very few being produced overall.
Pashmina is held in sacred regard in these regions, and the privilege to resource the finest, true Pashmina fiber for spinning and weaving into exquisite shawls is an honor and art reserved for special families holding centuries old positions and reputations of integrity within the ancient shawl trade established by royal families. This superior grade Pashmina fiber is used to create the world’s finest shawls, and is far removed from the commercially produced and often coarsely woven, blended, or faux “pashmina” that floods the fashion market.
