The product for which CHEN RESIK has developed an expertise is Pashmina. The question that may be asked is what exactly is Pashmina? Pashmina is one of the softest forms of wool found in nature. It is obtained from the underbelly of the Himalayan goat, which resides above 10,000 feet
(about 3050  meters).
