“Best quality for the best prices in this friendly shop”

Shayama Cashmere Store
Ranked #8 of 39 Shopping in Jaisalmer
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 February 2014

I had a great experience in Shayama cashmere shop. I learned a lot of history and facts of the production and had a great time together with the relaxed, nonpushing staff. I compared stores from all over the cities in quality and prices and this was my best choise. I know a lot about quality and been looking exactly for this kind of honest shop where me (the customer) can meet the seller halfway finding best quality at a resonable price. Thank you very much for a great experience and a trip all over the cashmere and pashmina history, you made my day and I will defenatily come back for some more!

I've been to a great number of textile outlets throughout India and have been lied to by many of the wallahs. Items that were supposed to be "genuine" silk or 100% pashmina were often blended fabrics and sometimes, I found them to be just synthetic.

The owner of Shayama Cashmere will tell you what you are being shown, with total honesty. I've *never* been sold anything here that was not a genuine product. There are blended fabrics (pashmina/silk; cotton/silk; and even synthetics), but when you specify what you are looking for, you will be shown only that product. If you want to see only pure pashmina, nothing other than pure pashmina will be shown to you.

The prices of the items do vary, depending on the quality of the product. I've seen some items here for $5 and others for $100 and in every case, the quality products have been worth every dollar. It really is a case of you get what you pay for.

The best aspects of this store are the knowledge of the owner about his products and, the "no hassle" approach. There's never any pressure to buy something and the owner is very patient in explaining the range of items available.

He can tell you everything you need to know about the product; how to care for it; how to wash it; how to spot a genuine from a fake and more and, there is NEVER any pressure to buy something.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!

Jaisalmer is a great city to spend time in while in Rajasthan, India, and there are some nice shops inside the fort and around the town. At the Shayama cashmere shop you can find shawls to fit all tastes and budgets. Sushil will assist you and organise packing if you want to send some back to your own country.
