A customs inspection at the Switzerland Italy Border, murders in the Tibetan highlands and a weaving workshop in Srinagar - Kashmir. What connects these disparate places? This week, in the tenth episode of Kashmir Diaries, Utsav brings to you the wild story of Shahtoosh, the most expensive fabric in the world, and completely illegal. Straddling three countries, this story has an innocent animal at the centre of it: The Tibetan Antelope, entwined in an underground nexus of producers, distributors and high end clients. Tune in, and discover what lessons the story of Shahtoosh holds for travellers like you and me.
