The true authentic Pashmina from India, Nepal, Inner Mongolia, Turkey will range from a reasonable $14.99 upwards to $100 or more if embellished with handwork. Pashm yarn is a Persian word for fine cashmere wool from the Himalayan mountain goat called Capra Hircus. These mountain goats are domesticated and used for their underfur to weave cashmere pashmina scarves and shawls. This is a thriving industry as the fashion designers have given this yarn so much attention that every woman today wants a Pashmina. This increased demand for this shawl has led manufacturers to make it in many different yarns to satisfy the demand in different price points leading to the commercialization of the term Pashmina from a yarn to a brand fashion statement. This means you will find authentic Pashmina and other varieties in the worldwide shawl Industry. It is the consumers that have led to this phenomena that suppliers have acted on to satisfy demand and supply scenario. The fashion pashminas in viscose or other soft yarns range in the $4.99 to $9.99 range depending on the quality and other ancillary costs. If you are willing to pay a little more for $14.99 and up you can get beautiful silk pashminas. The pashmina wool shawls can be procured around $39.99 and up from online sites that have low overheads.
Pricing on Pashminas depends on various factors like quality, combining Pashmina wool with silk and then keeping in mind the quality of yarn used, shipping costs, customs duty & taxes as pashminas are imported into the U.S. Another factor that affects pricing is the type of embroidery or handcrafted artisan quality work on it . Embroidered shawls are typically $39.99 up and the hand crafted unique shawls range $44.99 and up. Some sites have low resale margins and pass savings on to their customers and others with huge savings have high overheads leading to higher pricing and a high resale margin.
In the U.S. & in other countries it seems like customers want shawls with the soft feel of pashmina at varying price points including real budget shawls for bulk purchase as in Pashmina wedding favors which has led to Pashmina being considered more of a brand name than the yarn. Chain stores and even stores at the mall & online want to satisfy customer requests for affordable shawls - hence since the last two decades Pashmina has become a brand statement and a fashion statement every woman wants to make. Some Shawls carry a Pashmina tag used as a brand name rather than the real Pashmina.
The advantage to buying pashmina online is a lot of stores online function at low resale margins and try to move volume so customers get rare designer shawls at a fraction of the price compared to shopping at the mall where overheads are very high. There are shawl stores that incur high expenses on a fancy showroom and that affects the cost of the shawl too.
