Believed to have originated from Kani Hama village in Kashmir, Kani Pashmina is one of the most loved types of Pashmina. Handwoven using small bobbins, these shawls feature intricate weft weaving in their making. An offshoot of such an intricate process is this Maroon Kani cashmere which manifests the art along its borders. GI stands for Geographical Indications Certification, which is done to check the authenticity of Pashmina. Every G.I mark labeled product has a covert (readable under UV light) and a visible unique code, which can be searched on www.kashmirpashmina.secure-ga.com for verification.
