Who is Mr Graham Diamond?? This guy has apparently been spreading that we are boycotting Israel. This is not true. Read the article properly (http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3651655,00.html). Our company is called Mypashmina and is based in Göteborg, Sweden, it is not called "pashmina" and it is not London-based. We have received a lot of threating emails and phone calls because of this guy accusing us..just to clarify: WE ARE NOT BOYCOTTING ANYONE!!
