Do you also love chea pashminas like most of other women? Yes ! . If so then you will also be surprised to know that most of so called Pashminas available in market are fake. Even if you are buying from very high end store, that also doesn’t make sure that it is authentic.  

Do you know that “Pashmina” word is synonym of ” Cashmere “? But because Pasmina is not recognized as fabric under wool act, all manufacturers or retails are misusing the word. Some retailer are selling Shawl made from SHEEP WOOL and selling them as Pashminas.

The Cashmere & Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute (CCMI)was established to promote the use of genuine cashmere and to protect the interests of manufacturers, retailers and consumers of these products. And they are final authority in testing cashmere and pashmina products.

Here is what CCMI says "Because there is no consistently understood definition of the term "pashmina", CCMI regards the use of the term in signage or promotional literature for cashmere and silk blends, to be misleading. Pashmina is not a descriptive, generic term. CCMI considers the use of the term "pashmina" on required garment labels and in the absence of the appropriate designation "cashmere" to be in violation of labelling regulations and to be misleading to the consumer. The Institute will take action against such mislabelling."  [Link Removed] 

In past CCMI has found fake Pashminas at stores of Laura Ashley.
