Pashmina is considered the finest craftsmanship in the world which transforms the exceptionally warm and delicate Cashmere threads to opulent accessories. The fleece of Changthangi Goat is known as Pashm which is an Urdu word & has origins in Farsi. This goat is exotic and is only found there, 15000 feet above sea level in Ladakh - Jammu and Kashmir, making the art of Pashmina even rarer and revered all over the world. Pashmina has fascinated kings, royals, and people all over the world by its magical allure and a traditional grace. Perhaps this was the reason why we chose to showcase the exquisiteness and regal demeanor of this centuries old art to the world.
Recalling Spring, where flowers bloom and spread their fragrance all over the creation, an artisan handpicks a shawl and bestows it with an Aksi Do Rukha or reversible pattern, where one side of the shawl is the mirror image of the other - both hand embroidered for over a period of 4 long years. The shawl takes inspiration from Mughal courts.
"Do-Rukha", literally means "two-faced" and it refers to the specific type of wraps that were woven in a manner that the embroidery on the front of the wrap is mirrored by the pattern on the back thus earning it the title of Aksi Do Rukha (aksi meaning reflection). An Aksi Do Rukha wrap has been in style since 1860 and widely cherished for its unique weave and embroidery which gives the wearer a pleasure of having two wraps in one. The magnificent features and intricate embroidery makes this type of wraps the most extravagant and costly than all the other types of Cashmere.
An embroidered Do Rukha wrap can be combined with a plain back side or a mirror image of the front side. Nevertheless, however patterned, this variety of Cashmere wraps has earned a global acclaim for its fine Cashmere base and magically profuse embroidery that makes it a symbol of superior craftsmanship and a piece of art.
