Collection: HANDCRAFTED PASHMINAS

Tradition's exclusive collection of hand woven pashmina scarves and shawls are handcrafted in Kashmir, India from the finest pashmina fibres, also known as cashmere. The pashmina used is from the Himalayan goat kept by herdsmen in Ladakh.

We work with skilled textile artisans who weave and embroiderer these exquisite scarves and shawls. Natural pashmina is white or an oatmeal colour while the fibres are also dyed in a myriad of different colours before weaving. The pashminas are woven in plain or striped designs, or embroidered all over or with border designs by specialist sozni embroidery artisans. On heavily embroidered jama shawls very little of the base fabric can be seen. 

We are fortunate to have a large pashmina collection in our Paddington, Sydney store of woven and embroidered scarves and shawls. The shawls are 100x200cm and the scarves are mostly 70x200cm. Visit us to see and feel the complete collection and learn about the skilled artisans in the Kashmir shawl community who make these beautiful pieces. Eighteen processes are taken to complete one pashmina.

Some of our favourite pashminas are now available to buy online. This selection will vary over time due to the uniqueness of each shawl or scarf.

Each piece is individual and so treasured by those who own one.

To support sustainable and independent practice by artisans in the Kashmir shawl community Deborah Emmett of Tradition Textiles has facilitated co-design projects between Australian customers and the artisans. Working together the artisans and customers designed custom made shawls for the Australian participants. If a custom-made handcrafted pashmina shawl has special meaning for you and you are interested in knowing about the artisans who create these textiles consider being involved. YOUR GOLDEN HANDS is a not-for-profit platform that can connect customers from anywhere in the world with artisans from the Kashmir shawl community and facilitate co-design projects between them with transparency and integrity.
