The term cashmere was named after the disputed area of northern Indo-Pakistan, Kashmir where the continuous tumult occurs in the region. Now the pashmina industry growth is mostly in China and central Asia, both of which are now dominating over the production of this exceptional class fabric.

Though the term Pashmina is generally used for fusions of cashmere and silk fibers but it is crucial to label the percentage composition of each material used.
