Win a cashmere shawl by Jigmat Couture
The beginning of an extraordinary story of a small ethical fashion brand starts with an objective to revive, preserve and promote the textile art, craft and traditional way of life in the remote mountains of Himalaya ‘Ladakh’ India. Jigmat duo set out to create an industry from local resources. The Ladakh region is rich in livestock such as Yak, Goat, Sheep and Camel. From which some of the finest and exquisite quality of wool and cashmere are extracted. The main reason of this finesse is that the growth of wool is stimulated by the intense winter cold (minus 35-40 degree) of windswept plateaus and high altitude. We Ladakhi have great respect and myth for weaving and loom. There's a say in Ladakh that the weaving textile are associated with the fertility- the warp is like the mother and the weft yarn she inserts to make the cloth, is like the child conceived within her womb. As the cloth woven is similar to the child growing inside her womb. Our every textile that we produce is hand spun and hand woven on native loom such as foot loom (thag-sha), backstrap loom (sked-thags) and fixed heddle loom (sa-thags). All colour that we dye in natural, from the herbs and plant that is found in the mountains of Ladakh. Our venture and projects is an entire ecosystem in itself. Pls go through our website to know more.
