Pashmina yarn testing commences in Nepal
Jun '11
A pashmina yarn testing machine has been installed by the Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology to verify the quality of yarn used in the manufacturing of different pashmina items.

The Bureau has installed NPR seven million worth Optical Fibre Diameter Analyser, which functions on the basis of an automatic image analysis technology. The Analyser provides a speedy and accurate measurement of diameter distribution of the textile fibre and average diameter of fibre.

Following this installation, all pashmina units desirous of obtaining Chyangra Pashmina trademark need to get the quality check done for their yarn. The use of testing and collective trademark in Nepali Pashmina products would help in generating awareness regarding authentic pashmina.

For operating the textile laboratory at the Bureau, the Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology and the Nepal Pashmina Industries Association have inked a Memorandum of Understanding, according to which the association would grant Chyangra Pashmina trademark to the producers only after they obtain certification from the Bureau.

During the first three quarters of the 2010-11 fiscal, Nepal exported NPR 929 million worth of pashmina, as against exports worth NPR 963 million achieved during corresponding period of previous fiscal year.

The collective trademark and logo of Nepali Pashmina have been registered under the brand name of Chyangara Pashmina. The trademark has been registered in 38 countries and efforts are on to get it registered in eight more countries.
