Founded by Jenny Housego and Asaf Ali, together with his brothers in Srinagar, the beautiful lake capital of Kashmir, Kashmir Loom endeavors to sustain and infuse a modern soul into the woven and embroidered shawls from Kashmir Valley.
Dorukha Cashmere Shawl
A Kashmir Loom classic the glamorous 'Dorukha' or reversible cashmere shawl is solid one side reversing to subtle metallic yarns for a luxe look.
Kani Weave Shawls
Like an impressionist painting, Kani weave shawls are beautiful recreations of nature inspired designs using a very fine twill tapestry technique, and it can take several years to produce just one piece. Our collection of Kani weave shawl designs are careful re-creations of some of the glorious designs of the past.
Embroidered Cashmere Shawls
The highly skilled pashmina embroidered shawl profession is deeply steeped in the Kashmiri Sufi tradition, where embroidery becomes a form of meditation; of focused attention to the meticulous standards imposed by the art in which every tiny stitch is part of a jewel-like mosaic.
The Journey of Cashmere
Pashmina locally known as Lena Cashmere comes from a particular type of goat called Changra that lives in the high altitude regions of Ladakh in northern India and in neighboring Tibet at a height of over 5000 meters.
