BEFORE WE START: This is a ONE-OF-A-KIND, VERY SPECIAL, LIMITED EDITION SCARF/WRAP/SHAWL/PLAID - Exclusively designed by and created for TIMELESS PIECES, hand-spun in Nepal, individually dyed by artisans in Katmandu, masters of the traditional techniques. You cannot find the same wrap in a boutique or elsewhere. This item is NOT MASS PRODUCED, but it takes four days to finish this amazing plaid. We have kept our production very small (we only have 5 scarves in 5 different colors). Because the natural characteristics of the material are preserved, each scarf is unique.
This double-sided cashmere shawl by Janavi exclusively for TIMELESS PIECES is just the sort of understated luxury that everyone should be snapping up. It doesn't have a hint of ostentation but conveys elegance and sophistication.
Two contrasting layers of cashmere with small fringe detail and brilliant colors in a luxurious diamond weave, this scarf will quickly become a wardrobe staple.
Cared for properly, high-end cashmere should last a life time (or at least several decades).
Commonly asked questions:
What is Pashmina? Pashmina is a greatly misused term. It comes from the Persian word “pashm” which means “wool” In fact, cashmere and pashmina refer to the wool from the same goat, except pashmina is the very finest of the separated wool, having a diameter of 12-14 microns, and the goats mostly live in the highest altitudes in Kashmir and Tibet. (human hair is 75 microns)
Why is cashmere so expensive? Cashmere is the highest class of all natural fibers. It's warmer, softer and lighter than all the natural fibers. Besides, a goat only produces about 50 grams washed cashmere annually. A lady's sweater usually weighs between 150 grams - 300 grams, that's the cashmere from 3-6 goats. A man's sweater usually weighs about 250-450 grams, that's the cashmere from 5-9 goats! Furthermore, the production process is complicated, a sweater requires more than 20 processes of production, expensive special equipment and a lot of manpower
How come some cashmere is more expensive than others? Some manufacturers use coarser cashmere. In the raw material market, the price difference between high quality cashmere (fineness under 16.8 micron, fiber length above 32mm made in upper and middle reaches of Yellow River in China) and coarser cashmere is very big, the price of the latter is 2/3 or even 1/2 of the former. Some manufacturers even mix camel hair or chemical fibers.
What is sold on the street corner/store/airport for $50+ (buy 3 get one free...) is NOT pashmina (and surely not cashmere) but an imitation. These are cheap, synthetic-fiber shawls or at best made from wool and silk-like fibers.
- Some intricately handwoven scarves from India and Nepal retail for $10,000 and up.

A word about colors: We try our very best to capture the exact color of the item we are selling. Our computer screens are carefully calibrated (via a software called Spyder3 Eli*te) and re-calibrated monthly. We cannot be responsible how the color translates on your screen or how you might interpret the shade. There are literally 1,000s of variations of green. We use the same name the weavers use.
This is the best we can describe these colors. If you are ambiguous about your choice, please do not bid. We are NOT responsible if you perceived the colors to be different or if the colors don't suit you.
The visual sensation of color is very subjective. Each person experiences the sensation of color differently because many variables influence our color perception. Even if we did all see color the same way, we would still interpret and describe it differently based upon our individual life experience.
Disclaimer: On some computer screens colors MAY appear differently. This is due to the color calibration on your monitor and your Internet Browser. We disclaim all responsibility!
