making of our finest cashmere
every single pink maharani product goes through a detailed 18-step process completely handmade in the hands of master artisans who have been hand weaving cashmere since the beginning of the 18th century. Their knowledge and skills have been passed down from generations. We have beautifully illustrated the most important steps and further explain each sub-process in detail.
our impact one shawl at a time
The moment a pink maharani shawl adorns your shoulders, you change the life of one teenage girl from the urban slums of Bangalore and a kindergartener by bring light into their lives. With each purchase, a vulnerable girl going through her menstrual cycle is provided with knowledge and support for one entire year and a child living in the remote regions of India without electricity equipped with a solar-charged light bag.
the story and the strategy
making impact one shawl at a time
the sudden increase in demand for fine cashmere shawls since the 90’s has given rise to many counterfeits and blends making it almost impossible to distinguish between the actual and fake. Plus in spite of the demand, very little has trickled down to the nomads and artisans who are the back bone of this industry.
pink maharani envisions to offer the finest and most exquisite 100% handwoven cashmere shawls that are ethically produced. We care for the goats dearly and empower the artisans to make sustainable livelihoods. Our mission is also to educate the consumers of the painstaking work and love that goes into making pink maharani products.
pink maharani is the house of the finest handwoven cashmere which closely works with the artisans and small families to completely handmake its product. In order to further our commitment and impact, we also directly adopt and sponsor two children projects in India.
