Updated: May 10

Kashmir scarf and shawl have increased in popularity throughout Europe, USA, and many countries of Asia such as Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Korea, and Thailand. They are valued for their light weight and warmth but breathable fabric. The unique characteristics are Paisley design, Fishbone design, Kalamkari (stunning design) including, Hashi-Daar patterns. These make Kashmir shawls well known on a global scale. The shawl evolved into high-grade material used as a symbol of exotic luxury status. Kashmir shawl has since become a toponym for the Kashmir region itself (cashmere, named after Kashmir), inspiring mass-produced imitation industries in India and Europe, and popularising the fishbone pattern (pattern on the photo below) Buta and motif, today known as the Paisley motif
