Fully Embroidered Pashmina Stole

$250.00 $498.00

SC1226

This stole is made of Pashmina wool, the softest fibre that nature has ever produced, dyed in rich maroon revealing great depth and lustrous beauty, and with its entire field embroidered with fascinating design-motifs, is for anyone a proud possession, not merely cost-wise but also for the distinction that a Pashmina piece is always endowed with. When about two hundred years ago Europeans discovered Pashmina fabric in Karkhanas of Kashmiri weavers, they were astonished to see that a shawl made of it was so thin that it could pass through a ring yet still it could provide the warmth of a coat.

The Pashmina wool with hardly any weight, exceptionally lustrous and so fine that a fibre finer than this did not exist soon caught their fancy and Pashmina, which they called Cashmere, denoting its provenance, soon reached the wardrobes of queens and distinguished personages, one among them being Empress Eugenei, the wife of Napoleon III who tried it and it passed through her wedding ring.
