Pashmina Rainbow

.

.

Today’s post was a bit of a funny one for me to put together, not least because that’s my own mug staring back at me from most of the pictures, and also because I am interviewing my best friend, Jane, about a little project that we decided to work on together what seems like eons ago now!

.

Whilst Brides Up North (the blog, brand, events and related products) takes up 99% of my working time whole life, I sometimes put my beloved wedding brand aside to help Jane out with a pretty little labour of love that we like to call Pashmina Rainbow, a gorgeous online shop stocking soft scarves in all the colours of the rainbow, borne out of a frustration that dates back decades.

.

It seemed that whenever I wanted a coloured wrap for a race day, wedding or evening event, I just couldn’t find what I was looking for – something affordable, complimentary, of good quality and that would just ruddy well match my outfit!  Many market visits turned up poor quality products and the high street was almost as bad, just ten times more expensive: it was the pashmina problem

.

After failing to zip up my suitcase after a rather large haul of a year’s personal supply of rainbow wraps one summer in Spain, I aired my frustrations to my bessie, and voiced the immortal words “Gah!  It would be so much easier if we could just buy these online!”.

.

And with that, an idea took seed… so I’ll pass you to Jane, who sits at the day to day helm of our lovely little online shop.  But before I do, let me assure you that the pashmina problem has been solved.  Forever.

.

Hurrah!

Colourful pashmina wraps - Pashmina Rainbow by India Hobson Weddings

Jane says:  As girls on the go, Julia and I love fast fashion and mixing up our outfits with bright accessories.  We love the versatility that the viscose pashmina offers: you can wear it as a scarf, a shawl or a wrap, dressed up or down, in all seasons, at home and abroad. It will literally take you anywhere, and won’t break the budget!

.

We know from experience that finding that perfect colour of pashmina wrap in a one simple shade can be difficult: We’ve both spent many hours trawling the shops and markets (at home and abroad – much to the disgust of our husbands and holiday companions!), and often been disappointed by price, choice and quality.  We spent almost a whole year comparing samples and searching for a reliable UK stockist before launching our online pashmina shop

We had a great day shooting our range of rainbow pashminas on location in Sheffield with the ever fabulous India Hobson Weddings, whose fashion led camera skills we knew would capture our beautiful products fabulously. Special thanks to Ashley Tyrrell Make-Up who came along on the day to help make us pretty as a picture!
