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.
Painted with motifs from the heavens, a pure Kashmiri Pashmina shawl is what the people of class love to drape. Its colours depict her daringness, its patterns depict the world of her beautiful imagination, its weave shows off her love for traditions even when being a part of this world. She is the modern woman who is still glued to her traditions, in a Kani Pashmina shawl.
What is Kani
'Kani' in the local language means 'small wooden sticks' or 'bobbins'. It is these sticks around which colourful threads are wound and woven together with the delicate fibres of pure Pashm. But the makers have to go through a step by step process.
Weaving with Kanis: All the colourful Kanis are arranged as per the code of the shawl. Each kani is used one at a time in the shawl, and as soon as the design demands another colour, the two kanis are joined together by interlocking. It takes the artisan 1 day to complete just one inch, and 3 to 36 months to complete the entire piece. This labour intensive work can thus stretch upto years together and finally what we get is nothing less than a piece of marvel.
