Cashmere refers to the hair of goats
native to Kashmir in India, which also comes
from the Kashmir region.
Long known only as a traditional material,
Cashmere became known to Europe through
Cashmere Schole Muffler, imported from
Egypt in the early 19th century,
and the material gained sensational popularity
to the extent that Napoleon himself
instructed to import the goats and make fabrics.
