Regenerated Baby Camel Hair
The problem: Increasing global demand for cashmere products is driving devastating environmental and social issues in cashmere producing regions. Grassland overgrazing, desertification and low wages are causing financial hardship for herders and forcing migration to cities.
Our solution: While the negative impact of virgin cashmere is so high, we will use alternatives such as regenerated baby camel hair. We recover leftover baby camel fabric offcuts, which are mechanically reworked into new yarn. This process has been widely in use in the Prato area, since 1800’s, supporting traditional Italian skills and prolonging the life of this lightweight and luxurious fibre.
