This 100% cashmere red scarf aims to tell the story of cashmere and it’s origin.
This imperial red scarf is made from 100% cashmere. Which is a fibre obtained from the fine hair of the cashmere goat. The name and the fibre originated in Kashmir which is the northernmost part of the Indian subcontinent. It is finer, lighter, softer and approximately 3 times more insulating than sheep wool. At the same time, being a natural fibre, it is also breathable. Due to these characteristics it is called `soft gold`.
In the 19th century in Europe, it was seen as one of the most beautiful gifts that could be offered to a beloved woman. Today it is still the same, the only difference is that now it is also a wonderful present for a beloved man.
The colour red plays an important role in Hindu customs and beliefs. The red drape is believed to seal the marital bliss and promise of togetherness. The bride’s first step into a new home is characterized by the ritual of her dipping her feet in alta (red colour dye) and walking barefoot on the floor, symbolising a new phase of life. The symbolic meaning of colour red in India, has inspired our red cashmere scarf.
