SUSTAINABILITY & ANIMAL WELFARE
For our products we use sustainable and supreme quality cashmere by CONSINEE, a group specialized in the production, dying and export of high-end, especially woolen, fabrics.
CONSINEE is the world leader in luxury yarns and works with big fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton, Prada, Hermès, Chanel, Max Mara, Balenciaga, Paul Smith or Ralph Lauren.
The group was founded in 1999 and has always valued sustainability, transparency, tradition and heritage.
The raw cashmere fibers are sourced from experienced goat herders in Inner Mongolia. All of CONSINEE’s partner farms have to work under strict animal welfare and environmental guidelines. CONSINEE is also socially engaged in offering prosperity and welfare to the herders and their families.
Concerning the animals, the guidelines include the following points: breeding, shearing, feeding, transportation and general health and welfare of the goat. CONSINEE has a partnership with The Good Cashmere Standard. For more information please visit: www.thegoodcashmerestandard.org
In the last years mass sheep and goat farming in Inner Mongolia has increased and caused a widespread degradation of the grassland and increased desertification. Therefore, CONSINEE group has insisted on preserving the grassland and ecological environment in the key farming regions of Inner Mongolia, with strict control of herd sizes and grazing.
CONSINEE also keeps strict guidelines regarding the standard of the fineness and fiber length to ensure top product quality. Out of the raw fiber is then produced a yarn. CONSINEE’s factory works with high-grade wool equipment in partnership with SIEMENS (Germany) and a specialized team of employees with years of experience in high-end wool spinning, development and production.
