Why?

Artistii provides the way to reach the most original and authentic items rather than just stocking and reselling popular ones. The sale typically happens between you and the artisan, and the applicable VAT depends on both your countries. Items are sourced directly from the artisan and couriered directly to you wherever possible, but sometimes they may be routed through our warehouses in order to optimise costs.

This means that the applicable VAT may differ from case to case, and in any case a reliable indication about it may be provided only when the country of delivery is known at checkout. We choose not to display VAT on any product so that prices can be comparable between all products.

Please note that the indication displayed assumes you want the item delivered within the EU. If not, the right indication for your specific case is typically the one described below as VAT and Duty excluded.

Country specific VAT excluded

This indication is used when the artisan is VAT registered and in the EU, and you are purchasing from the EU. Country code for the country will also be specified, as the VAT due often is that of the Artisan’s EU country. The VAT rate is not included in the price displayed on this page, but will be added at checkout time. In addition, there is no customs duty within the EU.

No VAT applies

This indication is used when the artisan is not VAT registered and in the EU, and you are purchasing from the EU. In this case, no VAT or Duty is applicable to the product.

VAT and Duty excluded

This indication is used when the artisan is based outside of the EU, and you are purchasing from the EU. In this case, VAT for your country will be applicable, and import Duty will also apply. These amounts will be collected from you by your local tax authority. Often, this is handled by the carrier who delivers the product to you and will require payment for VAT and Duty from you before being able to hand the item to you. Subsequently, VAT and Duty are not added to at checkout time and are not collected through Artistii.

Manufacturing details

Cashmere goat

Pashmina is an exclusive form of cashmere wool from Changthangi goats in the remote regions of the Himalayas. It is the finest, softest, warmest, and most luxurious cashmere found in nature.

The goats grow an ultra-fine, inner coat of hair that insulates them during the long, harsh winters of the Himalayas. This inner coat is collected each spring, spun and woven into premium pashmina shawls and stoles.

This fabric is handwoven because pure pashmina is fragile, and power-looms cannot replicate the delicate art of hand weaving pure pashmina. In order to weave using power-looms, pashmina is strengthened with nylon. This nylon is then dissolved to yield a pure pashmina fabric. The strength, quality, and durability of the resulting fabric can therefore be preserved only using hand-looms.

The weave done on these pashminas covers the surface with tiny lozenge shaped squares, earning it the delightful name of "chashm-e-bulbul", or "eye of the bulbul". As this weave is a masterpiece of the weaver's art, it is not embroidered upon.

these handwoven pashminas are awesome, they don't ravel like those made at the power loom
