In order to create the perfect design for the t-shirt it usually helps to complete a wide-ranging brainstorming session that includes all aspects from the concept to full production.

Pashminas are generally made in black, grey, white, or cream colors depending on the color of the goats’ hair they are made from. The process of which Pashminas are made is quite extensive as they are all made by hand. The goats’ hair is collected every spring to make the scarves. The people who shear the goats make sure to turn the goats on their back because the hair on their stomach is softer and the hair that lies under it is also some of the softest on the goat. One scarf requires about three coats from the goats. The hair is then spun on a hand spinning wheel which is a time taking job. In order for the job to be done correctly, it requires experienced spinners.
Each spring, farmers climb the Himalayas to find the softest hairs on the mountain goats. In order for the goats to survive the high altitudes on the mountains, they grow inner hairs underneath the thick coat. These smaller hairs are the ones that are generally chosen to be woven into the scarves.
The yarn from the goat hair is too

While cool winds during summers are a lifesaver, during winters they are just the opposite! When the temperature drops, it can be unbearable to even step out of the door, let alone brave the cold winds and engage in outdoor activities. While one may argue that it is possible to put on layers of warm clothing, it isn’t actually a functional solution because wearing too many layers of clothing is quite uncomfortable and it also restricts one’s movements. The ideal solution to count on here is heated clothing. This is a special type of clothing wherein resistance wires are embedded between the inner and outer layers of the clothing so as to generate heat for keeping the wearer toasty and comfortable.
Heated apparel is mostly designed for individuals who engage in sports and physical activities during the cold weather. They are designed for motorcycle riding, winter biking, diving, downhill skiing, trekking, snowmobiling and other outdoor activities. They are powered by batteries. The amount of heat generated by the clothing depends upon the type and wattage of the batteries used. There are different types of heated clothing available out there

Think of your clothing not as lifeless textiles draped on lifeless figures, but as living, vital, fashion voices that reveal your own personality and individuality. These inventive and sometimes absurdly expensive yards of silk, wool, cotton, and man-made blends you have hanging in your closet, are not clothes until you put them on, move, and live in them. Clothes are designed to enhance a living, breathing, moving body.
Imagine your garment as a decorative extension
