Traditional Nepalese Craftsmanship, Modern Approach
The Worlds Finest Cashmere
The story of cashmere starts with goats. Not just any goats but high Himalayan cashmere goats that have adapted to the harsh environments and extreme temperatures. Found in high Himalayan regions of Nepal, Kashmir, and Mongolia.
Nature has provided, the goats with wonderfully thick coats made up of a coarse outer guard hair and a fine, soft undercoat. Yarns from the finest fiber are what we use for production the white, downy undercoat that runs from the throat to belly.
The yield is small. It takes fibre from one goat to make a scarf and upto four goats to make a sweater.
Traditionally, farmers would collect cashmere fibre by ceremonially combing their goats in the spring. Combing is still widely used today, alongside some farmers who prefer shearing.
Made to Last Generations
Cashmere is made to last generations. It must be a gift from a grandmother to her daughter.
A well-crafted cashmere can handle all your harsh conditions. It must be able to support you throughout your work. A lightweight cashmere for your signature look and a rugged cashmere scarf to face the harsh wind of the cold.
Cashmere must be dry cleaned or it can also be washed at home simply with baby shampoo.
- Always wash in cold or lukewarm water, never over 40 degrees.
- Use cashmere friendly, mild detergent.
- Gently press out the excess water after washing.
- Never rub, wring, stretch or hang the garment.
- Always dry away from the sun or any other heat sources.
- Always dry the garments flat.
