As one of the first brands to market pashmina to the general public, Bajra occupies a special place in the history of cashmere wool. Founded by designer Barbara Behn Constantinescu in 1992, this Nepal-based company produces luxurious hand-woven, hand-dyed silk, pashmina, and cashmere goods in every imaginable color and color combination — from tri-color scarves enhanced by gradual shading to multi-hued woven satin stoles. Nepalese craftspeople finish off Bajra's shawls, hats, and wraps with embroidered stitching and other embellishments reflective of their region. With two new collections every year and rack space at Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman, and other exclusive shops around the world, Bajra remains a dominant force in the world of fine cashmere goods.
Colorful straw totes, leather sandals, and more to finish off your stylish summer look.
With cooler weather comes the opportunity to let your accessories shine—and we can't think of a better add-on than a gorgeous scarf. To wit: these hand-woven styles from Nepal. Choose your favorite from sumptuous options like tricolor ombre, ocean-hued basket weave, and versatile neutrals like charcoal and beige. Or better yet, why choose? The dropping temperature is the perfect excuse to stock up.
Too often, scarves just keep the neck toasty, but when they’re this stylish, it’s important to see them as the fashion frontrunners they are. Here, the wraps range from thick and fringy to wispy and featherweight, with lush colors and intriguing patterns. Look for elegant shawls with damask and ombré effects as well as several sheer foulards, featuring subtle animal prints.
Stay warm while looking cool with this stylish assortment of wraps, gloves, and knit hats. Look for accessories from Mischa Lampert and Me & Kashmiere, to name just a couple.
