If you think that pashmina is pashmina is pashmina, let us break the news: there are five different qualities of "pashmina" yarn available to shawl producers in Kathmandu.

Most of the so-called pashmina shawls being exported from Nepal and India these days are made from adulterated yarn. If you haven't experienced premium quality pashmina, then you're in for a treat!

What is pashmina, anyway?

Pashmina is just the indigenous word for cashmere, a fabric woven from the wool of certain high-elevation domestic goats. The term cashmere was applied by European colonialists to this fabric because it was known primarily as a product of Kashmir, the disputed territory in northwest India.

Another client "BLOWN AWAY"

I AM BLOWN AWAY by these shawls. By the quality, exact color, packaging, embroidered message and not the very least the lovely card you put in every package. Amazing!!! Your personal touch does not go unnoticed! Thank you for the muffler gifts for Jacqueline and I also with sweet notes!! They arrived exactly to my front door when you said they would. I'm impressed!!! I cannot thank you enough for your excellent & expedient customer service.

You're the best.

Warmest wishes from Houston.

Will send you pics of the bridesmaids with shawls at wedding in Mexico.

First-time Sunrise shopper?

Mystified by the welter of verbiage and customization options? We've got a special page dedicated to the demystification of our own Web site: Advice for First-Time Shoppers.

By the way, we've got quite a few articles about Nepal and pashmina on Wandering Educators, the award-winning travel blog, including Shopping for Pashmina in Kathmandu. which has advice on quality and pricing.

You say pashima, we say pashmina...

How many ways can this word be misspelled? Here are a few that we've seen: pashminar, pashmine, pasmina, passmina, paskmina, pashminah, pachimina, pasmeena, pasmira, pasmeera, pasnima, pasimina, pachema, pachimina, pasminah, pashminia, bashmina, pamina, bashmeena, pasima, pashima, pachima, pashimina, paschmina, puhseema, pasichma, phasmina, pasmin, pacmina, passmeena, spashmina, peshmina, peshimina, pamina, poshminia, posmina, phasmina, pahsmina ...

We don't really care how you spell it. We're just listing these so that if someone googles one of them, we've got an edge over those hardline companies that recognize only one "correct" spelling.
