More about this Pashmina:
One of the cities that makes it so is Udaipur in the state of Rajasthan. During my 5 days in this mystical city on a lake I was captivated by the stories of the Maharanas who ruled this once Mewar empire and the sunsets. Each afternoon I would walk through the City Palace courtyard towards my favorite terrace to witness the sky turn brilliant shades of orange as the sun set over the Lake Palace in the distance. In route, without fail, I would get sidetracked at a little cashmere shop within the palace walls. It is here I met my friend, Ravi, and was introduced to the exquisite pashminas his family creates.
Ravi and his family are from Kashmir, India. They have been hand-weaving cashmere pashminas for years, and today pride themselves in the fact that they provide cashmere to the current Maharana as well as export their exquisite product all over the world.
The cashmere wool is gathered by hand and then completely handwoven (thread and pashmina). The intricate needle work is then added making this piece one-of-a-kind. This creation took over 20 days to create! The wool is from the belly of the cashmere goat which makes it the finest quality of cashmere after the wool from the goat's chin.
This pashmina is truly a spectacular creation from a unique part of our world, and it will feel like you are wearing a cloud.
