This 100% cashmere scarf aims to tell the story of cashmere and it’s origin.
This 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 and the exceptional softness of the fabric 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 golden colour of the scarf is inspired by the Indian golden city- Jaisalmer. It was built on a ridge of sandstone, crowned by a fort, which protects the city’s palace and several Jain temples. It lies in the heart of the wide Thar desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert. The fort is also a World Heritage Site. We found inspiration in the different golden shades of sand seen around Indian desert cities and the life there.
