Himalayan Cashmere Company
A stunning showroom slap-bang in the middle of Lazimpat—traffic whizzing by— but inside, a haven of taste and aesthetic design. Greatly inspired by purity of spirit, luxurious modernity, and a contemporary ethos, this is where one will find Himalayan Cashmere Company and its product line, manufactured exclusively for designers, high-end boutiques, and department stores worldwide. Established in 1995, Himalayan Cashmere Company continues to produce fine cashmere products, combining natural fibers with the skill and precision of traditional hand craftsmanship.
The showroom is, in fact, a unique environment in which one can purchase designer quality cashmere products, including shawls, scarves, sweaters, blankets, dressing gowns, jumpers, cardigans, cover-ups, etc., all from the finest pashmina possible, and silk and raw silk, woven, knitted, and screen-printed at factory prices. Himalayan Cashmere also continues a rare local luxury tradition, the genuine Dhaka, a hand-woven fabric that involves one master’s work for twelve days or longer.
Beginning as a small manufacturing unit with skilled local artisan weavers, Himalayan Cashmere Company today specializes in weaving with cashmere from Mongolian and Chinese mountain goat herds, handspun on the premises with traditional spinning wheels. It is where craftsmen create a broad variety of traditional and modern patterns, all on wooden handlooms.
