Traditional Turkish handwoven cashmere
The term cashmere arrived in the 16th century, and was used to describe the shawls spun by Kashmiri craftsmen on the Silk Route bound for India. In the late 18th century, cashmere shawls were being exported to the West, particularly to Britain and France. We work with a Turkish artisan that has taken the ancient Turkish craft and modernized it for the 21st century - Mehmet hand weaves our 100 % cashmere wraps on his traditional handloom in Istanbul from the fleece of his own goats. Every one of these items is made with 100% natural fibers and supports sustainable design, including fair pay for artisans.
Use and Care: Gently in a cold washing machine, never in a dryer.
