Abstract: This paper focuses on the legal issues involved in one source of wealth in Kashmir- the famous ‘pashmina’, one of the most refined forms of cashmere. Problems and possibilities involved in the protection of traditional knowledge accumulated over the ages which goes into the manufacture of the ‘pashmina’ fabric to understand how the common man in Kashmir may be secured from detriment that might be caused due to the possible unjustified exploitation of such traditional knowledge are also discussed. In this process, the broader argument of whether geographical indication is effective as the sole means of protection of traditional knowledge is also examined.
