GEOGRAPHICAL ORIGINS
Pashmina fibre has its origins in the LADAKH region.
Also known as "Little Tibet", the latter is a vast, cold, semi-desert region of the Indian Peninsula.
Covering an area of about 98,000 km2, Ladakh has a population of about 135,000, making it one of the highest inhabited plateaus in the world. At an average altitude of 5,300 metres, the winters are consequently long and harsh.
In addition, negative temperatures are recorded three months a year, from December to February (up to -30° in Kargil and -50° in Dras).

THE FIBER

The term Pashminaoriginates from the Farsi language, refers to the down that naturally develops under the winter coats of animals endemic to Upper Asia, as well as to the fibre used to make the famous shawls. 

THE PASHMINA GOAT

For centuries, the breeding of Pashmina goats (Changthangi for the locals) is ensured by the nomadic Changpa shepherds, whose tents can be seen scattered across Ladakh, at altitudes ranging from 3,600 to 4,500 m.
