Raw Material

This product is made primarily from Cashmere and Cotton.

Cashmere fibre is mostly produced in China and Mongolia. It is biodegradable. However comparatively it has a big carbon footprint, high water use and can be associated with livestock cruelty. So eco impact is high.

Conventional cotton harvesting and manufacturing is associated with a comparatively very high water footprint and high use of chemicals and pesticides. So its eco impact is high. Despite being biodegradable often dyeing and finishing undermines its biodegradability.
