Our Story

Welcome to Cashmere Kala, where the ancient art of cashmere craftsmanship meets contemporary luxury.

Deriving its name from the Sanskrit word "Kala" meaning "art", Cashmere Kala is dedicated to sharing the exquisite artistry of fine cashmere with the world. Our story is rooted in my childhood memories, watching my parents and siblings meticulously work with cashmere wool—brushing, dehairing, and spinning it into the delicate yarn used to create the highly sought-after Pashmina scarf.

Creating a Pashmina is an intricate process requiring expertise and precision at every step. The result is an elegantly soft, lightweight, and warm cashmere scarf—a testament to the mastery of the artisans who craft it. Established in 1994 by my father, Mr. Jagadishwor Pokharel, Ganeshdeep Pashmina began as a small-scale operation in Nepal, with a handloom in our bedroom and a kitchen doubling as a dyeing unit. Over time, our family business expanded to include an outlet in Thamel, a bustling tourist hub in Kathmandu, where we became intimately familiar with the many facets of this luxurious fabric.

Today, we proudly stand as one of the few Certified Cashmere Manufacturers in Nepal, offering an ever-expanding range of high-quality products. Historically favored by emperors, kings, and rulers, cashmere has long been a symbol of status and luxury. While its popularity once lay primarily with aristocracy, cashmere has since become an essential staple for luxury connoisseurs across the globe.

At Cashmere Kala, our core mission is to provide an exceptional cashmere experience, underpinned by unparalleled quality and dedicated customer service. We go to great lengths to ensure our customers' satisfaction, forging long-lasting relationships that keep them returning for more. Our commitment to excellence shines through in every piece, handcrafted by skilled artisans using the finest cashmere available.

Together with my brother, Mr. Maheshwor Pokharel, we founded Cashmere Kala in 2023 as a digital extension of Ganeshdeep Pashmina. When you wear our cashmere, you are not only embracing unparalleled luxury but also becoming a part of a rich Himalayan legacy that has been preserved and cherished for generations. Welcome to our world of exquisite artistry and timeless elegance—welcome to Cashmere Kala.
