60% Linen, 40% Cashmere Pashmina Wool, Handmade in Nepal
From the Designer
Wild cats are a common motif in kitschy apparel, artwork and textiles. At my best friend’s house growing up, a larger than life painting of a tiger hung in their living room, a favorite of my friend’s father and an embarrassment to my friend. But there is something so beloved about these illustrations. The pattern on this pashmina scarf, made up of a lion, tiger and cheetah, takes the playfulness and nostalgia of these illustrations and ads a heavy dose of sophistication. Feline 1 is full of warm tones of orange and yellow and is a perfect compliment to a casual fall outfit of jeans and a sweater.
This pashmina scarf is a loose-weave blend of 40% cashmere pashmina and 60% linen creating a soft, lightweight all natural fiber scarf for all seasons. Plus, it is 100% handmade in Nepal, meaning the fabric is hand spun, hand woven, and hand dyed and screen printed by hand.
Pashmina refers to a type of fine cashmere wool that comes from a special breed of goat, indigenous to the high altitudes of the Himalayan Mountains. Cashmere from Nepalese pashmina wool is the highest quality that exists due to the conditions that mountain goats have adapted to over centuries. In order to survive the harsh, cold climate, the mountain goats have developed exceptionally warm and light fiber that is six times finer than a human hair, and creates the most luxurious fabric in the world.
