Kashmir Trail Scarf
The Pashmina journey begins early summer when Himalayan farmers climb into the mountains to collect the soft fleecy wool of the Lena Rama. a wild goat that lives mostly in the Chang Thang area of Ladakh. The fine delicate wool is carefully hand spun by women across Kashmir and then hand woven by men whose craft has been passed on to them for generations.
These rich shawls are then shipped to Rajsthan,the desert region of India to be hand block printed by master artisans that continue to this day to work in the traditional hand blocking process. The mixing of these two crafts is rare making your piece unique in its character. You have yourself a piece of art that has made a long journey to end up with you.
Enjoy your process.
