MJ Scarf "GANGTOK" made of finest hand embroidered Pashmina cashmere - purely handcrafted
Yaser Shaw processes exclusively cashmere wool from the local goats. These live at an altitude of 4000m above sea level and get a dense undercoat in winter to be protected from the freezing temperatures.
During the spring coat change, this is then combed out and the finest and longest fibers are spun by hand. The combing out alone can take up to 6 hours and is only carried out by experienced professionals under constant control in order to protect the animals.
Pilling is almost impossible due to the nature and length of the naturally grown hair. Also, the dyes are obtained naturally and the cashmere thread is dyed by hand in a complex process.
In historical tradition, weaving is done on wooden hand looms and embroidery is done by hand. Weaving is the responsibility of women in Indian tradition and men's hands embroider these wonderful works of art. From combing out the cashmere wool, to the finished scarf it takes, depending on the size, up to 9 months. After completion, the craftsmen embroider their initials on the end of the scarf and each scarf becomes a luxurious unique piece through this entire process.
