Cashmere shawls supply from Nepal

Published Date: 2017-06-05

While pashmina amounts to more than 50% export of handicraft products, when India and China started producing copies of pashmina, cashmere shawls supply from Nepal suffered badly. 21.78% of total handicraft exports amounting Rs. 584,265083 was contributed by Pashmina in the year 2007-8. It was Rs. 793,632,764 in the year 2070/71, which decreased to Rs. 517,757,266 in the year 2071/72 by 35%. The contribution of Pashmina export was 11% in the year 2014/15. It is believed that approximately 5% of the product is consumed domestically, while others are exported to the countries like USA, Germany, Canada, France, Japan, UK, India, Germany and others. It is the third largest export from Nepal.
Also known as "Diamond Fiber" and "Soft Gold of High Asia", the shawls are woven and handspun with the ancestral gift of designing at the hands of Nepalese craftsman. Every shawl is an outcome of long delicate process of fur collection, weaving, dying and giving a final touch, which is artful, painful, and takes pretty long time. The process starts when Chyangra sheds hair naturally; the goats aren't hurt. The loom is set up which demands 2-3 days. Feet control the movement of the shuttle and the hands directs the bar; the harmony between the hand and feet brings uniform weave. It takes around one hour for a shawl to be weaved. The process doesn't stop here; the woven shawls have to be cleaned and checked for quality produce. Then comes hand massaging the protruding threads. The shawls are soaked in dye with chosen mixture of colour powder. The shawls are sun dried after they are soaked, again, in fresh water. The last process involves knotting the fringes of the shawls.
