Himalayan Cashmere Company, founded by Susan Snyder, is a rare and exquisite producer of hand woven shawls, blankets and clothing working with 100% cashmere. In the ancient tradition of hand spun, hand loomed and hand dyed materials, this company maintains a dying craft that is kept alive through its modern designs and exceptional weaving techniques.
What Susan saw in Nepal was a great chance: to help revive the artesano character of an almost dying cottage industry that was about to collapse in the abundance of cheap machine made tourist souvenirs by founding a company that would work exclusively with the old fashioned handlooms.
“I was blessed with the opportunity to found a company that created beauty out of a local tradition and refine it with global design skills.” - Susan Snyder
