THREADS OF CULTURE
Carefully knitted by the skilled hands of passionate master artisans who transform the precious fibres into a lifetime companion
Covering Afghanistan, India, China and Mongolia, the Kashmir region hosts the Hircus goat with its uber-fine golden fleece, developed under its longer and tougher coat to survive in hostile winter environment reaching -30°C. In milder spring, the shepherds gently “comb” this amazing under-down: just 250 grams from each goat per year, which is why our cashmere is so precious.
We work with the finest Italian spinning company, Cariaggi, leader in the field, with the highest certifications for its excellence in research and development. As a result, the yarn embodies unique qualities such as culture, technology and materials which lead to excellence. Collaborations with important Italian universities for innovative cashmere dyeing systems introduced renewable and environmentally friendly materials which guarantee a superior quality.
Our supplier is a member of the Cashmere & Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute (CCMI), an international association promoting and protecting the image and integrity of noble fibres such as camel hair and cashmere textile products.
