Today Indian cashmere is becoming well known. It's native name
is Pashmina and it has become a favourite in high fashion circles. To differentiate it
from it's more common Chinese and Mongolian varieties people say that it is a different
animal or that it is the wool of only a certain part of the animal. But the fact is that
it is the same animal that other cashmere comes from. Pashmina of India is simply
the best cashmere in the world.
So little is known of the Himalayan goat hair
business, that few people can make the connection between cashmere and Kashmir India and
yet it's to this area that traders have come for centuries seeking the world's finest
cashmere wool. The finest cashmere wool comes from Tibet. It was under the talented and
dexterous fingers of Kashmiri weavers that the wool was first brought to the loom unknown
centuries ago. Hence the name "cashmere", evolved, as ancient Kashmir was known.
Demand for cashmere in the world has grown so much
that Cashmere goats can be commonly found at almost any place , that means even on the
lower elevations one can easily locate these goats. Because of the fineness of this wool
'Cashmere Shawls' is one of the most sought after shawls in India and Europe.
