100% cashmere shawl in mutli-colour stripes with butterfly hand-embroidery.
The pashmina wool comes from the Changra goats of the Ladakh region in India. Their wool, which grows in response to the cold climate, is shed in the summer and hand combed to obtain the extraordinarily delicate fibre.
Each bundle of wool is hand cleaned, treated with rice paste, washed, and spun into fine gossamer-like threads ready to be spun by local artisans, for whom weaving is like meditation; entwined in Sufi tradition.
