I purchased this lovely cashmere scarf for my son’s girlfriend’s birthday at a pop up trunk show here in Petaluma, before my visit with them in NY where they live. Samantha loved the scarf. (Pictured left)
Very nice Open Trunk event in downtown Petaluma. Beautiful woven textiles. Superb craftsmanship and gorgeous cashmere wools. A real pleasure to run into this event quite by chance.
Love my scarf! Beautiful color, high quality. I am telling my friends about Pashm.com!
(April 100% Cashmere Scarf Winner) I think the scarf is beautiful. Such reach, deep color, and so soft. It’s one of the prettiest things in my closet, and I so appreciate that your scarves are handcrafted. Thank you again. Peace and hugs,

Pashm began as a weaving and dyeing workshop in 1992 by previous American designer-owner, David Muir, and has been carried by retailers Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom’s and boutiques across the world.
Pashmina is popularly known in the west as cashmere wool, from the old spelling for Kashmir. The fine wool comes from the undercoat of the Himalayan mountain goat and, for over a thousand years, has been hand-woven into shawls and blankets. For many centuries Kashmir was the only place the fiber could be woven into shawls, but today most of the world’s real pashmina shawls are woven on handlooms in Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley. Most are woven on a warp of spun silk for increased suppleness and strength. In recent years this silk and cashmere blend has become the darling of the western fashion world. But the cashmere blanket throw has become the sought after homegood accessory for cozy days curling up with a book and cup of chai tea. Sadly, much of what’s being sold as “pashmina” these days is woven on machine looms with low-quality cashmere or other angora — to those with a less discerning eye. We are here to change that and protect the legacy of hand-loomed quality and skill.
