Do You Like Our Pashmina Pop Video ?

So ?  Did you like it ?

The loom shown is a Jacquard loom. All the threads are set up and tied to heavy weights to keep them straight and tight. Then the weaving begins.

Each time the shuttle is pushed across, the holes in the jacquard cards mean that a different selection of the stretched yarns are raised or lowered. This makes each row of the fabric individual, which builds up a pattern row by row.

The little boy in the video is my son. He is playing with a wheel which is for hand spinning the cashmere which is found in the angelweave stoles. Hand-spun cashmere is uneven, extremely soft and looks great as well.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask.

The people at YOU Magazine have been doing a photoshoot of Nadiya Hussain wearing some high quality pashminas from MYPASHMINA as head scarfs.

In 2015, Nadiya Hussain was a winner of  'The Great British Bake Off ' - A competitive cooking show on British state TV.

She was a very popular and much loved contestant and was many also loved the stylish headscarfs she wore due to her religion.

YOU magazine wrote an interesting article about her life tribulations and also made some beautiful photos.

This is her new book. It looks very inspirational.

"'A revelatory honest read . . . She writes with clear-eyed insight . . . There's no doubt that the book will make an impact and enable young girls to question the boxes society places them in and to dream bigger than the previous generation thought possible.' YOU Magazine"

Wearing a pashmina on the head in this style is a great idea. It looks fantastic and also keeps your head warm. We also love the choice and use of colours in these pictures.

A Customer Photo

What a lovely photo from one of our customers. The pashmina looks great. Oozes quality.

"I love my Teal pashmina. I have got many compliments since it goes so well with so many of my outfits. ... here is a photo of me trying it on for first time."

This is a classic pashmina stole - 70% Cashmere / 30% Silk. More like this can be found here.

I removed the background from the original, In case you were wondering! 

I can officially announce that Mypashmina no longer needs to hire models.
