The history ofpashmina shawls goes back to the Mughal dynasty, where Babur would honour members of his court with exquisite robes. These robes would often be made of Pashmina. Pashmina Shawls have always been an intricate part of Indian culture. In fact, daughters coming from rich families in Pakistan, India and Nepal often have pashmina shawls as a part of their bridal trousseau. A pashmina shawl is also seen as a great gifting option owing to the rich and intricate craft of making one. The Pashmina has created an indelible mark all over the world. Empress Josephine, the wife of Napolean Bonaparte, used the Pashmina and gave it global exposure. The pashmina shawls come with a variety of embroideries like Kalamkari, Sozni and Jamawar. Each of these techniques is beautiful and truly brings out the beauty of Pashmina. Not just shawls, in earlier days, even gowns, coats and turbans were made of pashmina wool. 

Creation of a Pashmina Shawl

The pashmina wool is produced by people from the Changpa tribe; they collect the pashmina wool from goats which is then sent to Kashmir for various procedures like combing and spinning. Weaving is carried out by a highly specialized group of artisans. It is said that it takes over 180 hours to produce a single pashmina shawl. A craft like this deserves to be recognized and promoted for it to thrive in the coming decades.
