About Us

Get to know us better.

The beginning of an extraordinary story of a small ethical fashion aggregator started with an objective to revive, preserve and promote the authentic textile art, craft and traditional way of life in the remote mountains of Himalaya. www.TheRealPashmina.com is set out to create an industry from local resources across the Himalayas. We are located across Himalayas in Ladakh (4000-5300 Meters above sea level) and Kashmir (1850-2400 Meters above sea level)  deeply embedded in the mountains of Karakoram in the North-West, the Himalayas in the South-West and the Trans Himalayas at its core. The mighty river Indus originating from the interior of Tibet is predestined to flow right through the centre of this region. The region is rich in livestock such as Yak, Pashmina Goat, Sheep and Camel from which some of the finest and exquisite quality of wool and cashmere are extracted.

Interesting Facts

There’s a saying in Himalayas that the weaving textile are associated with fertility.

The warp is like the mother and the weft yarn she inserts to make the cloth, is like the child conceived within her womb. As the cloth woven is similar to the child growing inside her womb. Women are the creators of life they say.

There are three kinds of looms. Foot loom (thag-sha), Back strap loom (sked-thags) and fixed heddle loom (sa-thags). Various textiles are woven on these three looms (nambu, spuruks, challi, phug-shar, tsug-tul, tsug-gdan, ta-gal, lu-gal, ma-gdan, phi-gyis, ray-bo).

 www.TheRealPashmina.com has ensured that every textile woven in Ladakh and Kashmir is used in our collection for varieties of merchandise.
