This exquisite red cashmere scarf is very soft, warm, elegant and inspired by the history and origin of cashmere – the soft gold.
This scarf is made of 100% fine cashmere, which is spun from the fine hair of the cashmere goat. The name and the material itself come from the region of the same name in the north of the Indian subcontinent. Cashmere is finer, lighter, softer and, above all, around three times warmer than normal sheep’s wool. At the same time, as a natural fiber, cashmere is extremely breathable. Not least because of these properties and the high degree of gentleness, it is also called ’soft gold‘. Already in 19th century Europe it was considered one of the most beautiful gifts for a beloved woman. This has not changed, except perhaps that it is a wonderful gift for a loved one these days.
The color red also plays an important role in Hindu customs and rituals. Marriage and the promise to go through life for two are sealed with a red cloth and red accessories. The bride’s first step in the new home is connected with a ritual in which she dips her feet in Alta (red color) and then walks across the floor to herald the beginning of the new phase of life. This scarf is inspired by the symbolic meaning of red around love and togetherness.
