Possibly the most coveted wool out there, cashmere is as downy-soft as it is rare. Unfortunately, global demand has caused a tidal wave of cashmere on the market, with it putting increased pressure on Mongolian farmers and herding grounds. Leading to overbreeding of cashmere goats, a decrease in fiber quality, and the desertification of the Mongolian region. That's why we have decided to work exclusively with recycled cashmere.
Traditionally, Cashmere wool comes from goats situated in the Himalayas of Inner Mongolia, where the flock experiences temperatures of -40°C. The goats develop a quality fleece with properties to survive these rugged conditions, which ultimately translates into the garment. It’s the wool’s unique properties and remote location that led Cashmere to be considered a luxury material, though it has become ubiquitous today.
