    Why Cashmere?

    Cashmere is a premium material, sought after by consumers worldwide for its lightweight softness, warmth and durability. Cashmere is also called “soft gold” due to its costly production process and scarcity; a single Cashmere goat yields only 200g of fine hair – barely enough to knit one sweater. The luxurious feel of cashmere makes it especially suited for the production of premium-quality garments. In a world of fast fashion, cashmere is still something beautiful and durable that is popular in developed countries in Europe, North America and Asia.



    Cashmere Market

    The global fashion luxury cashmere clothing market is expected to reach US$3,112 billion in 2022, growing at an annual growth rate of 3.86% per year between 2017 and 2022.
