Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium, Is the visual art's emporium presenting the finest art work from state of Kashmir, Specializing in Pashmina shawls, Cashmere shawls, Ibex shawls, silk shawls and rugs and much more...!!!Our passion and obsession for luxurious hand-woven materials persuaded me to open up my own family business. We at Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group offer uncompromising quality in natural fabrics, such as Cashmeres, Pashmina, Silk, fine Wools, Cottons. In particular, the company specializes in Cashmere and Pashmina, considered some of the most luxurious wools in the world. I started this company in January, 2000. We cater to very high end boutiques that have very discerning tastes. We also have our flag ship store at the Udaipur india,We at Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group understand the needs of our clientele Therefore, we make sure that every effort is made to meet their expectations. All shipping packaging, shopping bags and tags for the company are made from recyclable materials. We believe that every step we take towards living a 'greener' life will help to the lower the carbon footprint the company leaves on the ecology. The difference between Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group and many other companies is our sensitivity to the need to support the artisans, weavers, and spinners, who live in the remote regions of Kashmir. By offering work to them, the cottage village flourishes and the ancient art of hand-looming and delicate embroidery work is not lost to modernization. We pride our self on cultivating some of the finest embroideries and exquisite weave work on cashmere fabrics. Some of our finer embroideries and weavers can take several years to complete. While we promote the artistry of weaving, we do not allow child labor or cruelty to the goats. We insist in using only Eco-friendly Azov-free dyes. The company prefers the painstaking process of ironing the individual shawls as opposed to the more modern techniques of electric iron press machines. We believe it will support and fortify the ancient art of weaving and embroidery while rejuvenating while supporting these families financially. Therefore, we open heartedly welcome you to discover our enchanting world of handmade Pashminas, Cashmere shawls.!!!(Group of Cashmere shawls The Shalimar Emporium)

I went to Lateef's shop due to my colleague's high recommendation. His shop is cosy and beautiful, with a great variety of goods to choose. Lateef and his staff are both very talkative and helpful. He told me so much about Pashmina and his hometown Kashmir. I have to say, before he told me, I knew nothing about this area... More

Only a Kashmiri understands the work that goes into stitching and embroidering and creating a good quality stole. Lateef offers frank service, knowledge, fair prices and truly cares about the customers experience. He's a true gentleman and a pleasure to know- after 13 years for me now! Thanks Lateef.

Quality pashmina and silk goods at reasonable prices. Latif, the owner was very helpful and friendly and there was actually no pressure to buy. I stopped a couple of times just to escape the noise outside and to have a chat with Latif or to ask general questions and directions. I could certainly reccommend this shop to other travelers without... More
