What you see is a 2 meter by 1 meter Pasmina Shawl.
What you don't see is a rich 600-year old history.
Legend traces the shawal's origin to late 14th century when a persian noble Mir Syed Ali received its weaving in Kashmir. With the exclusive patronage of the Sultans of Kashmir, the Moughals and later the nobolity of France and England, the shawl bloomed literally into an elegant, personal adorment of an international stature. Naturally it was much fancied, much copied but thankfully never ever equalled in excellence.
The Pashmina Shawl : Such exqusite craft, such fine detail ! it takes 12 meticulous steps to spin the yarn frm the raw 'Pashm' wool and over 100 master craftsmen and specialists take a year to complete a good shawl ! It is a wonder, the shawl has survived through these turbulent centuries. But thanks to the vision and dedication of a very few, it has survived. Fashno Shop is proud to be one of those , very few. For us, shawls means a glorious tradition with fashion and style, not just merchandise.
