IF YOU WANT TO TREAT YOURSELF TO A PRESENT
knowing that the proceeds will serve to make someone’s life better, contact us:
Our pashminas are entirely hand-woven in Kashmir because the thread is so fine that it cannot be machine-woven. The embroidery design is created by local artists and made entirely by hand.
Our suppliers are not only among the best in the world but they also feel involved in our projects, giving us the opportunity to maintain extremely competitive prices.
The designs of the fabrics are made entirely by hand with the block print technique.
We at Vimala are proud to help preserve such a beautiful traditional art that enables many families of quality craftsmen to make a living.
The embroideries of the most precious garments are created, designed and embroidered exclusively for us.
