Obtained from the undercoat of mountain goats, cashmere fibres are handled manually, right from the collection of fibres till the product gets final touch, everything follows manual handling. Finding the qualitative cashmere factory in Kathmandu
can be quite difficult. Not all the factories have image to maintain, trust to keep winning, and future to keep growing. Some industries penetrate the cashmere market to bag as much money as possible within the short span of time. Similarly, some industries have been mixing furs of other animals and selling the products claiming to be of genuine quality.
Normally, the manufacturing industries collect cashmere fibres from highlands such as Lower Mustang and Upper Mustang. Some of these industries make reliable coordination with farmers here for regular supply of the wool. Most of the Chyangra and Yak herders either sell these wool to Chinese buyers at very cheaper rate, or they often go wasted. The International Trade Centre has estimated that the highlands of Nepal including Humla, Mustang, Mugu, and Dolpa districts home about 300,000 Chyangras. Almost 55,000 Chyangras can be found in Mustang only. This gives a miniature estimation about the importance and potential of Cashmere products in Nepal. However, the volume of cashmere wool imported from China is greater than what is being produced in Nepal.
Nepal Pashmina Industries Association (NPIA) has registered Chyangra Pashmina as a registered trademark, which has also been registered in 38 countries such as Norway, US, Switzerland, Japan, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, etc. This has raised the official recognition of Nepalese cashmere products in the international market. You might want to know about whether your country has registered the product. Cashmere products are fine to touch, smooth, have long fibres, in case of original quality, and very much strong. However, you must pay extra attention to taking care of the cashmere products.
