Our cashmere is harvested from the Changtang Valley where the goats are sustainably raised and produce exceptionally fine cashmere. The center is dedicated to producing the very best handspun cashmere knitting yarn available in limited supply to the tourist industry in Leh and the North American market.
The Craft Center
Expanding an ancient tradition in the High Himalayas
The Pangong Craft Center is the only cashmere craft center in the High Himalayas dedicated to supporting a semi-nomadic community of 120 families, living at 14,500'. Beginning with just five spinners a few years back, the center now employs nearly eighty women in the art of spinning and weaving cashmere as an alternative to working on a road crew.
