It is the eve of and World War II is engulfing the globe. Newlywed Nerys Watkins leaves rural Britain to accompany her /5(22). The early history of shawl weaving in Kashmir remains obscure, some scholars believe that the craft came from outside the region – that it was brought in from Iran by Syed Ali Hamdani and Badshah Zain-ul-Abidin in the fourteenth century. But historian Janet Rizvi, co-author of the book Pashmina – the Kashmir Shawl and Beyond suggests that it was a local craft that developed within Kashmir.

Woolen shawls made in Kashmir are mentioned in Afghan texts between the 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD. However, the founder of the pashmina industry is traditionally held to be the 15th century ruler of Kashmir, Zayn-ul-Abidin, who introduced weavers from Central Asia. ‎ Andrea Litchfield ‎ to Rosie Thomas Author.
