Pashmina means cashmere.When Catherine travelled to Nepal in 1993, she brought pashmina shawls to Switzerland for a lady who wanted to sell them. However, she was not convinced of the colours. Catherine decided to take over the dyeing process herself. Since then, each piece is individually hand dyed by Catherine in her atelier. Carrying her hand-dyed Pashmina samples,
she ventured out to find clients in London and New York.
