Caviar-Black Pure Pashmina Shawl from Kashmir with Kalamkari Embroidery All-Over

Caviar-Black Pure Pashmina Shawl from Kashmir with Kalamkari Embroidery All-Over

The Persian word 'pashm', meaning soft and superfine, is the root of the word 'pashmina'. When one hears the word 'pashmina' it conveys an image of something superbly beauteous, a texture that is inimitable, a sense of something that is one of the most desirable things in the world. This handpicked shawl is one such pashmina. It is deceptively lightweight and warmer than a tropical summer dusk. If you have been looking to invest in a statement pashmina or two to complete your wardrobe, this youthful yet complex number is where your search ends.

The luxury and price of this one shawl could be understood once you consider that an average male of the endemic Hyrcus goat species, which roams eye-wateringly high Himalayan altitudes, yields annually just enough moult for a fraction of a scarf. Add to that the fact that it takes great degrees of skill, labour, and time to turn it into fabric, dye it, and embroider it to produce what you see on this page. The abundance of floral motifs, highly characteristic of kalamkari art, has been done against non-uniform pastel-coloured panels. Note how the same colours have been put into the stripes along the edges.
