Cashmere is known as the “Diamond Fiber”. For the Conspicuous values add it delivers, quality standards are stringently regulated. Venerable standards, ISO 2648:1974, (Length Distribution parameter Electronic method, Fiber diagram machine fibers processed on the worsted system) ISO 1136:1976 (Mean Fiber Diameter Air Permeability), ASTM D 1282-96 (Average Diameter) , CCMI: Industry Association are notable. These collective measures by the global cashmere Industry preserve the cachet of the material.

In spite the globalization and the high street opulence of the finished product. Cashmere is still sourced from Villages - in the remotest steeps of the Himalayas to the far flung stretches of the Gobi Desert, Central Asia. Farmers rear the goat for husbandry, in small numbers house by house. The clip is sold once a year in the molting season (March / April) - to middlemen and traders – often as a supplementary income.

Before the economic liberalization of China in the 80-90’s, – industrialized cashmere spinning was only done in Italy and Scotland. Dehaired Cashmere was exported to the European mills. Today much of the world’s Cashmere is spun in its source, China and Mongolia. The Worlds’ annual Produce of Cashmere is believed to be 7000 tonnes. 80% of it is from China. And the rest from Mongolia, Nepal, Afghanistan. Nepal has her own trademark on Cashmere. Namely “Chanygra Pashmina”. Some of the best qualities of Cashmere come from the Himalayas of Nepal (and Tibet). We still hand spin our Cashmere in Nepal. We also use yarns from all renowned spinners. From Italy to China.
