These shawls have been woven since about the eleventh century, but the real kashmir shawl producing industry have thought to begun during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The word shawl is originally said to be derived from Persian word shawl. It denotes a class of woven fabric. Mughal, Afghan and Sikh invaders, who visited Kashmir often left influence on the shawl that paved the way for it to become a highly stylish fashion accessory.

The shawl industry is said to blossom under the rule of Mughals. Persian men had traditionally worn narrow waist girdles of shawl fabric, as part of male dress, while the Indians wove wide shoulder mantles for male attire. These were usually given as prestigious gifts. 

Inspired by English herbals, the earliest design on shawl that owe its roots in seventeenth and eighteenth century was a single flowering plant. It used to honor the Mughal court during the seventeenth century. Boteh or pine motif design of shawls has many theories attached to it. The most logical among being the Paisley Museum's explanation.

Demand for kashmir shawls rose in Europe in the mid-nineteenth century. he demand of the shawls at that time was so enormous that it was not possible ti satisfy such a huge demand. Britain at that time was leading by satisfying such a high demand. The European manufacturers were rather slow to realise the potential of the shawl market. 

Kashmir shawls being woven from hair were light and smooth with a natural sheen. The technique of weaving kashmir shawls was the twill tapestry technique. The early British shawls had warp (vertical) threads of cotton or silk. These threads were strong and could bear the strain of being lifted to introduce the pattern threads of the weft (horizontal) thread. These could be of wool, cotton or silk. Wool was not strong enough for use as a warp until the French invented a yarn of wool fibres spun round a silk core. 

History present the proof of shawls being in fashion during the last 100 years. However, its shape changed with the time to lend it a new look and moreover to suit the dresses with which it was worn. From 1770-1810 simple high-waisted white muslin dresses were fashionable. With these neo-Classical dresses, simple long light stoles with narrow borders and deeper woven ends or small one-yard squares shawls with narrow borders folded into a triangle were worn.

It was at the time of the widening skirts that the shawl really became popular, Gradually the paisley design of the shawl became popular. Paisley had become pre-eminent in Great Britain by reducing costs through sub–division and specialization of labour. They appealed to the mass market of the middle and eventually working classes. Norwich, Paisley, Glasgow and other towns printed shawls are some of the designs that became immensely popular. A combination of events led to the decline of popularity of the shawl in the early 1870's. But now again the shawls have captured their popularity. These are now counted as the fashion accessory that never fell out of fashion.
