Kashmir is most famous for its intricately woven and embroidered shawls, which for centuries have been a cornerstone of European fashion Around thirty thousand rural workers still weave and embroidered Kashmiri shawls, which remain a status symbol in India.
The Kashmir shawls are definitely pre-Mughal in origin and design; India is the probable home of the shawl as an article of personal wear as used today around the shoulders.The Emperor Akbar was a great admirer of the shawls of Kashmir it was he who began the fashion of wearing them in duplicate, sewn back to back, so that the under surfaces of the shawls were never seen (Do-shalla).
During that time the most desired shawls were those worked in gold and silver thread or shawls with border ornamented with fringes of gold, silver and silk thread.The majority of the woollen fabrics of Kashmir, and particularly the best quality shawls, were and are still made of Pashm or Pashmina, which is the wool of the Capra hircus, a species of the wild Asian mountain goat. Hence the shawls came to be called Pashmina. The fine fleece used for the shawls is that which grows under the rough, woolly, outer coat of the animal; that from the under-belly, which is shed on the approach of hot weather. Materials of an inferior grade were of the wool of the wild Himalayan mountain sheep or the Himalayan Ibex.
