We believe that saving the planet is the responsibility of us all and that we should strive to improve our Carbon Footprint and protect the environment in any way we can.
Did you know that the average Cashmere goat produces 4 to 6 ounces of Cashmere annually, and it takes approximately 16 ounces of Cashmere to make one jumper? Cashmere can be up eight times warmer than ordinary wool, despite being so lightweight. This is a precious resource, and equally expensive to produce.
We need to look after our Cashmere products, as well as protect and value the Cashmere goats. This means revitalising, refreshing and upcycling this precious wool so that it is as good as new, and much cheaper for the consumer, who saves approximately 70% on any purchase of a Cashmere product. Everybody benefits from this form of recycling.
