The origins of cashmere. The word "cashmere" originates from two words: "Kashmir," from the Kashmir breed of goats that originally produced the wool, and "pashm’," the Persian word for "wool." This incredibly luxurious fabric is referenced in Indian documents as early as the third century.However, it wasn't until the 16th century that the word "cashmere" was first used, when spinners traveled to India along the Silk Road and spun and traded shawls. Around this time more than 50,000 of these craftsmen wove cashmere products for trade.
