Shahpash is pure Pashmina from which the legendary ‘ring shawl’ is made. It is incredibly light, soft and warm. During grazing at 14000 ft above sea level, a few strands of the downy hair from the throat of the goat are shed during spring time and painstakingly collected by the nomads, eventually to supply to the shawl makers. The Shahpashfiber is only 14-19 microns in diameter and cannot be spun by machines, so the wool is hand-spun by the finest artisans of Kashmir, primarily women. The skill of the artisan to spun the fine yarn determines the price of the shawl. The yarn can be spun so skilfully as to resemble a strand of silk. One distinct difference between Shahpash and Pashmina is the fiber diameter. Shahpashfibers are finer and thinner than Pashmina fiber, therefore, it is ideal for fine scarves and ring shawls. Ring shawls are so finely woven that the whole shawl can pass through a ring.

Shahpash is the finest web of elegance in simplicity. Fine ring wool is woven and dyed in jewel-like colors. The weave is so luxurious in itself that little decoration is needed. To enhance the Shahpashto its highest glory, a small border called “Paldar” is embroidered into it, usually made to stand out with gold, silver or bronze thread.
