To celebrate the end of this extraordinary Indian summer, Princesse Moghole takes you to India!

It was in 2012 and in my quest for the finest cashmere in the world, I found myself in the Himalayas, on the borders of India, China and Pakistan …

The state of Jammu and Kashmir is located in the far north of India: in the west, muslim Kashmir, and to the east, buddhist Ladakh. The area is a geopolitical powder keg since the partition: India, Pakistan and China are fighting over the borders.

“We travel for things to happen and change, otherwise we would stay at home.”
Nicolas Bouvier

Some moments are unique, like being at 4500m above sea level in the company of a goat baby pashmina ❤️
It was 2012 and the Princesse Moghole adventure began …

Srinagar is the capital of Indian Kashmir. Nestled in a valley at the foot of the Himalayas, it extends around a lake, the Dal Lake.

The Dal Lake is the heart and lung of Srinagar, scene of a very intense lake life.

The British took refuge in summer in Srinagar to enjoy its freshness. They built houseboats on Dal Lake to circumvent the ban on owning land.

Grown in lake gardens, vegetables are then sold at dawn to retailers.

And life flows through the water …

The Mughal emperors regarded Srinagar as their Eden and built magnificent gardens there.

The Kashmiri are the worthy descendants of the Mughals, who arrived from Uzbekistan in the 16th century.

They are proud of their independence of mind and practice for the most part an Islam based on Sufism.

Do not tell a Kashmiri that he is Indian: he would take that as an insult!

As Eid approaches, families buy sheep for sacrifice.

The stalls are blooming …

And Srinagar is immersed in the effervescence of the preparations.

In kashmiri “pashmina” means soft gold. It is carefully weighed to the nearest gram.

It is spun by hand by women, whose dexterity is unparalleled.

This is my first encounter with Feroz, who weaves your pashminas. You see the signature in F that may be on your stole? It’s him.

The master embroiderers at work: it was in 2015 when shooting the video. Who would have thought that she would go around the world, briskly surpassing a million views?

The kani shawl is the ancestor of the jacquard, at a time when everything was done by hand. The pattern is pixelated and the craftsman carefully counts the threads of each color. Months, even years of work!

It’s time to leave Kashmir for Ladakh. The road is spectacular and very dangerous, narrow and bordered by precipices sometimes high of 1000m …

Even if Lamayuru is separated from Srinagar by only 183 km, we immediately feel that we are entering another world.

Here begins Ladakh, ancient Buddhist kingdom perched in the middle of arid mountains.

Leh is the capital of Ladakh. Located at 3520m it requires acclimatization altitude, beware of shortness of breath after a few steps!

Ladakhis practice Tibetan Buddhism.

In a Buddhist monastery the traffic is always in one direction, that of the needles of a clock.

Ladakh is dotted with beautiful monasteries perched on rocky outcrops.

The traditional ladakhie society is an example of respect for the environment. Despite extremely difficult living conditions, ladakhis manage to be self-sufficient.

If the pashmina is so fine, it is that it is obtained at very high altitude at 5000m. For comparison Mongolian cashmere is obtained between 1500 and 2000m above sea level.

The finest pashmina is reputed to come from the Tibetan highlands of Changtang. In winter, shepherds lead the herds to more than 5000m and then descend the summer on the shores of Tso Moriri lake.

Chang-Pa nomadic shepherds traditionally raise flocks of Pashminas goats, as well as sheep and a few yaks to balance the herd and promote its survival.

It’s a very rough life, temperatures can reach -50 degrees and sunshine is extreme, but it’s the price to pay for the finest pashmina.

Korzok, on the shores of Lake Tso Moriri, is one of the highest inhabited villages in the world, with an altitude of 4595m.

In the summer, Chang-Pa joins the shores of Tso Moriri lake and the pashmina harvest season is in full swing.

The goats will be carefully combed to collect the superfluous down: necessary for their survival when it is -50 degrees, it is much too hot under the sun!

Pashmina’s production has remained totally artisanal and environmentally friendly, accounting for only 0.5% of world cashmere production.

An exceptional cashmere, pashmina is also the only truly eco-responsible cashmere.
Never forget that it was offered to you by a small Himalayan goat, while it provided an income for all the families who helped make your stole. ❤️

The Poncho Pashmina is back in a new version

PABLO, the reversible poncho in pure himalayan cashmere is finally back in its new version!

Its proportions have been redesigned to fit all morphologies, whether you measure 1.60m or 1.75m.

the pashmina poncho is dual tone reversible

We have developed an exclusive seam to replace the jewelry buttons. This one is entirely embroidered by hand in pure 100% cashmere pashmina thread to guarantee impeccable finishes worthy of haute couture and a total reversibility of the model.

n order for this reversibility to be perfect, we have replaced the brand labels with our new vermeil labels, small charms engraved in 925 silver plated with 24ct gold.

The Pashmina Poncho has been designed as the versatile accessory par excellence, as elegant in poncho version with its silky drapery, as practical in scarf version around your neck.

No more puzzle to constantly adjust your shawl around your shoulders, the poncho pashmina will not be long in becoming a must-have of your nomad dressing.

Quickly draped, it wraps itself elegantly around your figure to warm you up in style, making it the ideal accessory for the mid-season, but is just as comfortable wrapped around your neck as the weather demands.

Combining the French design style with an exceptional artisanal craftsmanship worthy of haute couture, entirely hand-made, poncho pashmina stands out as the ultra-luxury alternative to cashmere ponchos.

The Pashmina Poncho is an exclusive Princesse Moghole model.

The TOOSH Pashmina finally available in 3 colors!

This announcement will make happy: the TOOSH Pashmina is finally back in stock in 3 colors!

The TOOSH pashmina is the finest quality of pashmina, incomparable of softness, lightness and warmth. It is closest to shahtoosh, the famous shawl of Tibetan antelope (now banned for sale to protect the endangered species). The first time I touched a TOOSH pashmina I instantly fell under his spell to the point of reserving one immediately: he has since become my favorite “comforter”!

Unfortunately like all exceptional pieces the TOOSH pashmina is difficult to obtain, which explains the frequent stockouts. Only the most talented craftsmen are able to weave it on a regular basis, and they are in great demand! And yes it seems that many unscrupulous traders sell them on the black market as shahtoosh (between 2000 and 10000 € each)
eco shahtoosh

The TOOSH Pashmina comes in the 3 natural colors of the goat down. To maintain its extraordinary sweetness we have chosen not to dye it (a dye will inevitably damage the fiber and it is a pity at this level of quality). The gray beige color, which has been out since last December, is back in stock, as are the natural ivory and a new bright beige. As always stocks are limited …

Our new label: a 925 silver 24K gold plated charm!

If the word “pashmina” comes from the Persian پشمینه / pašmina, which means “woolen pashm”, Himalayan goat’s fleece, in Kashmiri the term translates literally as “soft gold”

Indeed each pashmina is a treasure, patiently hand-made by a succession of passionate artisans, proud to continue a tradition of 500 years. So we had the desire to distinguish it from all these items produced in the chain in factories – including cashmere – by creating a special label, which is different from a simple woven label.

What’s better than a jewel to sublimate a gem?

So we imagined this small engraved medal, which will honor him discretely, and have luxuriously made vermeil (925 silver plated 24K gold) by a specialist in jeweler’s finishing.

This new label will equip our limited edition collection for the moment, before moving on to the whole range of real pashminas.

We love it. What about you ?

How to wash a cashmere pashmina

You love it but fear to damage it by washing it? Do not worry, a pashmina is hand woven in pure himalayan cashmere  and is therefore very easy to hand-wash, cashmere being a fiber that appreciates water. Here are some pictures to follow to wash your cashmere pashmina with confidence:

Wash your cashmere pashmina by hand





Unlike sheep wool, cashmere fiber likes water and is very hand-washed in cold or barely warm water.

How to wash your cashmere pashmina by hand







It is imperative to use a mild liquid laundry detergent for wool and silk or even a mild baby shampoo that is diluted in cold water. Do not soak, stir lightly with your fingertips for a few minutes. Do not use softener.

Rinse your cashmere pashmina with several waters







Rinse with several waters. To guard against possible bleeding of bright colors, we can add a few drops of white vinegar to the first rinsing water





Wash a pashmina in cashmere: dryingTips for washing your cashmere pashmina


Do not twist: wring out by squeezing the fabric, then wrap it in a towel to remove excess water.


A real cashmere pashmina must be dried flat

iron your cashmere pashmina







Dry flat, avoiding the sun and heat sources. A pashmina is so thin and light that it will dry very quickly, about an hour!









Last step to make all your beauty to your pashmina: ironing! A pashmina will iron easily with medium iron or hot with a little steam. If you are unsure about the reliability of your iron, you can experiment by inserting a cotton fabric (towel or handkerchief) between your pashmina and the iron.




In a previous article you made the test of the washing machine: if necessary a real pashmina or a cashmere stole is completely machine washable cycle wool – respecting of course – some precautions, but we do not do not recommend using this procedure at all times, but reserve it for occasional use. You will keep your pashmina longer by carefully washing it by hand.

In a future article we will discuss the SOS of Cashmere and Pashmina, or how to remedy the small usual accidents such as stains, felting, pilling or wire shot.
