The Mongolian Fiber
Mongolian nomadic lifestyle inherited through centuries is a representation of unique coexistence of human, nature and herding. Nomads were able to survive and even thrive in one of the most hostile climates in the world. It is believed that every living thing in nature have spirits, so the domestic animals are treated with respect and care e.g. the down shearing process is not conducted by machine; instead herders use special scissors to avoid inflicting any injury on the herd.
Cashmere is the wool or fur of the Kashmir goat, which are primarily raised in Mongolia, but many are bred in Iran, Tibet, India and China. The colder the climate, the finer and warmer the undercoat, and the better the cashmere that comes from it. Cashmere naturally comes in white, beige, light grey and brown colors.
Yaks survive at altitudes sometimes exceeding 5000 meters in harsh highlands of Himalayan region, Tibetan Plateau and some areas of Mongolia and Central Asia. Yaks come in grey, light brown and dark brown colors. Properties of yak wool like breathability and static-resistance make it an ideal fiber for garments as well as home products.
