A Pashmina is a fine type of cashmere wool, the textiles made from it were first woven in Kashmir, the term Pashmina has morphed into a term for a larger sized scarf as well, generally larger than a typical scarf, more similar to a shawl or stole, and intended to be worn around the shoulders as opposed to around the neck.
Just to be clear this is not a true Pashmina as it is a polyester fabric, but the style is there, it can be worn as a scarf or a shawl, it's up to you. The fabric is tightly woven with a soft silky feel and a low sheen, most of the scarf is a deep, rich red almost burgundy (which proved very difficult to capture!) with same colour paisley print embossed into it, both of the short edges are finished with a 25cm strip with gold and blue being incorporated into the paisley design. The long edges are hemmed with the shorter edges woven into a row of tassels.
