Owner description: Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium, Is the visual art's emporium presenting the finest art work from state of Kashmir, Specializing in Pashmina shawls, Cashmere shawls, Ibex shawls, silk shawls and rugs and much more...!!!Our passion and obsession for luxurious hand-woven materials persuaded me to open up my own family business. We at Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group offer uncompromising quality in natural fabrics, such as Cashmeres, Pashmina, Silk, fine Wools, Cottons. In particular, the company specializes in Cashmere and Pashmina, considered some of the most luxurious wools in the world. I started this company in January, 2000. We cater to very high end boutiques that have very discerning tastes. We also have our flag ship store at the Udaipur india,We at Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group understand the needs of our clientele Therefore, we make sure that every effort is made to meet their expectations. All shipping packaging, shopping bags and tags for the company are made from recyclable materials. We believe that every step we take towards living a 'greener' life will help to the lower the carbon footprint the company leaves on the ecology. The difference between Cashmere Shawls The Shalimar Emporium Group and many other companies is our sensitivity to the need to support the artisans, weavers, and spinners, who live in the remote regions of Kashmir. By offering work to them, the cottage village flourishes and the ancient art of hand-looming and delicate embroidery work is not lost to modernization. We pride our self on cultivating some of the finest embroideries and exquisite weave work on cashmere fabrics. Some of our finer embroideries and weavers can take several years to complete. While we promote the artistry of weaving, we do not allow child labor or cruelty to the goats. We insist in using only Eco-friendly Azov-free dyes. The company prefers the painstaking process of ironing the individual shawls as opposed to the more modern techniques of electric iron press machines. We believe it will support and fortify the ancient art of weaving and embroidery while rejuvenating while supporting these families financially. Therefore, we open heartedly welcome you to discover our enchanting world of handmade Pashminas, Cashmere shawls.!!!(Group of Cashmere shawls The Shalimar Emporium)

“Very good destination for pashminas and gifts”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Shalimar has to be one of the best outlets in Udaipur. Mr. Latif's stock is comprehensive and there is no sales 'grief' whatsoever. A complete range of qualities and price-points, all of which is explained knowledgeably and very quietly. There is real interest and a love of product in this place.
We live in Mumbai and and I'm very happy to put this shop right up at the top of our list of recommendations for India. Don't miss if you're visiting Udaipur. Really.

“Store of wonders”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Walking into The Shalimar Emporium is a welcome break from the clutter, hassle and intense pressure of the other shops in Udaipur. The owner is extremely knowledgeable about his products and the surrounding area, he's also not afraid to give advice to customers about getting the best quality service! He and his store are true gems close to the Daiji footbridge, a visit to Latif and his store restored our faith in India's shopping system and we left with not only beautiful products, but brilliant advice too!

“Cashmere Soft-Sell”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

Our visit to the Shalimar Emporium was a complete experience. On Tripadvisor's recommendation, my son and I visited the shop in February where we were treated to a display of myriads of scarves, all colours, all wonderful patterns. The gentleman, Latif, were so helpful and informative, all without any pressure to purchase. I am so happy that I bought some of his fine product, two scarves for my wife and one for my daughter. Thank you, Latif, your beautiful scarves are being enjoyed in Canada, especially the cool pattern with the cat faces!
