This year there will be a group of five exhibitors from India. These companies are EZMA, Pashma, Old Village, Geentanjali and Ahujasons. What is sure to intrigue and interest the professional buyers who will visit Cashmere World are the specific weaving arts and pashmina from India.
Here is a unique opportunity to see garments that reflect the cashmere culture so characteristic of Indian designs yet are very much in line with the latest fashion trends.
India's cashmere goat herds are located in the foothills of the Himalayas, mainly in Ladakh but their numbers are limited to around 175,000, according to information given to Cashmere World by Dr. Riaz Shah, Professor cum Chief Scientist at the Sher-E University, Jammu & Kashmir, India in the exclusive interview he gave to Cashmere World.
Dr. Shah will be participating in the Cashmere World conference on the subject of the cloning of the tiny pashmina goat Noori on September 29th at 10am in Room S427, Level 4 of the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The implications for the long term future and development of the cashmere industry based on this Indian scientific breakthrough are enormous.
The presence of Dr. Shah at the Cashmere World conference is thanks to the sponsorship of his trip to Hong Kong by Team-Lee Fashion Knitters Ltd of Hong Kong and Robert Wan. Mr. Wan has dedicated his life to pearls and the exquisite jewelry that can be created from them. His company offers a collection of jewelry crafted from cultured Tahitian pearls in exclusive Wan designs such as necklaces and chokers to suit a woman's mood.
Mr. Wan decided to support the cashmere industry out of a sense of social responsibility as it produces luxury products similar to his pearls. He hopes to contribute to the improvement of the lives of the herders who toil all year round in hard winter conditions to propagate the best quality cashmere from the goats they tend.
The other sponsor of Dr. Shah's trip is Team-Lee Fashion Knitters, a specialist knitting company based in Hong Kong that creates all types of garments such as cardigans, sweater and pullovers. The motivation for the generous sponsorship by Team-Lee is also out of a sense of social responsibility to support the cashmere industry - especially the herders who, as mentioned above, lead hard lives in sub zero conditions.
Dr. Shah's presentation is but one of the many interesting topics that will be covered at the Cashmere World Conference.
