The Story of Pashmina Explains whyit’s Expensive

Talkingthreads.in - The softness, delicacy, and subtleness will mesmerize you, as you gently glide your hand over an authentic pashmina shawl, stole or scarf. Also, when you wrap it snugly around you, you will notice how light it is and yet so warm. It will not be long before you fall in love with pashmina-based fashion accessories,essentially for qualities that you won’t find in any other fabric. You will automatically come to realize, not just the qualities of a pashmina, but other things as well, such as ‘why pashmina is expensive’, ‘why there’s an influx of fake pashmina products’, and ‘why pashmina is a much sought after fashion accessory, globally’.
When you sport a pashmina, you are not only making a fashion statement, but carrying a grand story as well. The story is approximately 4 centuries old, when pashmina shawls were produced for the first time by local weavers. The wool for pashmina is sourced from a local breed of goat, called pashmina, naturally found in the higher altitude regions of the Himalayas such as Kashmir and Nepal. Nature has endowed the pashmina goat with such a rare material that helps it survive the tough winters in the Himalayan regions. With the onset of the spring season, the wool is collected from these goats and put through a number of processes such as sorting, spinning, weaving, dying and embroidery. The final product is a pashmina, and since the entire process is hand driven, it explains the extraordinary look and feel of the fabric.

Since pashmina is entirely handmade, it also explains why they are expensive, as compared to factory produced lookalikes. Mass produced lookalikes use synthetic fabric and enjoy the benefits of economies of scale, which considerably reduce their manufacturing cost. However, these can never match the qualities of authentic pashmina and you will certainly avoid using lookalikes if you understand and respect nature, and appreciate the finer qualities that are abundant in a pashmina.
Pashmina has a rich history and a long list of patrons from the old days including several emperors and maharajas, many of whom initiated special programs to promote pashmina across geographies. It’s easy to fall in love with such a magnificent natural product, and even today, pashmina connoisseurs vouch for the fact that even though mankind has landed on the moon and has invented highly advanced machines and systems, it is yet to match nature’s finesse and intricacy, as has been rendered in the wool sourced from the pashmina goat. There’s simply no other fabric that can provide the same properties, as inherent in a pashmina.

Pure pashminas are the most expensive, as they are made from 100% wool sourced from pashmina goats. There are also varieties that have a mixture of silk in a certain percentage, approximately 20 to 50 percent. These are good too, but not as good as pure pashmina. You can make your choices based on your budget and specific tastes & preferences.
