Restoring the glory of an exceptional fibre: the new sustainable luxury
For us, the best cashmere is produced in Mongolia (outer – the real Mongolia) by the nomadic herders involved in the Union of Sustainable Cashmere Cooperatives.
The cashmere fibre harvested each spring is of high quality (which can be less than 15 microns and a fibre length of 36 to 41 mm).
This project was set up in close collaboration with the NGO AVSF, which carries out remarkable support and training work in the field. A rigorous protocol for animal welfare, the environment and ensuring that the entire supply chain meets the highest ecological and social requirements.
We control the traceability of goat herds to the finished product, 100% made in Mongolia.
Nomadic breeding in a wild, rugged and beautiful natural environment is part of Mongolian ancestral culture. During the winter, these families live isolated with their herds, exposed to temperatures as low as -50 degrees. These breeders live in harmony with their environment and their survival is conditioned by the preservation of their herds.
The adoption of sustainable practices by farmers must be defined and proven. This is why, in consultation with the cooperatives, AVSF has developed a certification model that includes a list of 25 criteria (good practices) to be respected at the individual, collective at the level of pasture user groups and collective at the cooperative level.
The secret of our durable cashmere comes from the quality and cleanliness of the fiber from the combing stage, which limits mechanical and chemical treatments during the dehairing and finishing stages. This way, we obtain the purest, softest and most resistant cashmere yarn naturally.
