Art History

The Kashmir textile industry was given great impetus under the Mughal emperor Akbar (r. 15561605). The pashmina utilized in their weavings was imported from Ladakh, from which Kashmir had secured a monopoly, and the yarn was woven to form very fine shawls with 80 to 100 warp threads per inch. In the nineteenth century, these luxury shawls became a major export to Europe.
