Pashmina threads hang on a handloom during the making of a kani shawl at a home workshop in Srinigar, Jammu and Kashmir, India, on Monday, Aug. 24, 2015. Pashmina goats are no ordinary goats. The shaggy, wide-horned beasts produce pashmina, the finest cashmere, a silky soft cloth that can fetch as much as $200,000 for a shawl in the boutiques of Paris and New York. Most of that mark-up goes to a long chain of buyers, weavers, traders, middlemen and wholesalers. Photographer: Prashanth Vishwanathan/Bloomberg via Getty Images
