Nepal is one of the world's top manufacturers of high quality cashmere. Typical products include shawls, stoles, scarves, mufflers, blankets and pullovers. Half of the nearly 20,000 people employed in this industry are women. 

Cashmere is much loved for its lightness and warmth. Our cashmere shawls are versatile and perfect for the Australian winter. Whether paired with a formal dress or your favourite jeans, it adds an element of sophistication. This shawl is very versatile and can be draped around your shoulders or worn around the neck as a scarf. The delicate fringed edges and intricate weaves showcase the artisan’s finesse and dedication to perfection.

What is Cashmere?

Cashmere, also known as cashmere wool, is a luxurious fibre obtained from the soft undercoat of cashmere goats and certain other breeds of Himalayan goats. This material has been used for centuries to create yarn, textiles, and clothing. The term “cashmere” is derived from an anglicisation of Kashmir (north India), the region where the famous Kashmir shawls originated in the 19th century.
