Support The Artisans

Support The Artisans

Due to the crisis of the Coronavirus Pandemic, most of our artisans are facing trouble-like situations. The supplies of Pashmina raw materials got affected due to the nationwide lockdown. Even the Craftsmen have no access to cash for their goods in the market. Small businesses of those textiles are not able to welcome buyers into their stores. Poor artisans are suffering a lot due to the downfall of the global market.

 WE, are selling worldwide online and appreciate your trust and support. At this time, we are helping those craftsmen to find potential buyers just to sell them and support the community. Our goal at KashCrafts is only to promote this Luxury Fine Art and to provide you with the best at an affordable price.

 At the beginning of this August, KashCrafts started a new campaign #supportartisans to promote those artisans (often family-run) helping them to sell their Fine Textiles. Use this hashtag to reach the limits. Those products are genuine and the prices are very low as compared to the market. KashCrafts is more into supporting those skilled artisans rather than earning much out of their crafts. Your support will be highly appreciated to join this campaign and the contribution just to bring them out of this trouble. KashCrafts offers a complimentary gift on every purchase during this campaign. Join KashCrafts to support the community.

What is Pashmina

What is a Pashmina.

A word Pashmina came from a Persian Gulf, which means  Fine Wool.  The word has been used indiscriminately in the market from past 20 years. This type of fine wool come from a special breed of goats called Chagra found in the Himalayan ranges of Ladakh. A Pashmina shawl is special only when its processed by hand as it has a finest cashmere measuring between 12-15 microns in fiber thickness were preserved only by hand. This fine wool is raised and ship to Kashmir, where the actual game starts. A special technique of hand-spun and handloom weaving by the artisans of Srinagar, Kashmir make this Pashmina a luxury product. Those type of hand-woven shawls are made simply into many designs and patterns. . Most of the shawls woven in Kashmir is designed by the fine embroidery famously known as SOZNI WORK. This type of embroidery is done through a fine needle to cover the design with many colors of stitching of silk/cotton on the scarf. This procedure takes a long time depends on the design  graphed on the shawl. It can goes more than a year to complete a PASHMINA JAMAWAR SHAWL.
