Origin and processing of cashmere, one of the most precious cloth in the world

Warm, soft and sweet. These adjectives represent perfectly the word “cashmere”. Cashmere is one of the most rare and precious fibres that we can find. Every year is available only five million kilograms of cashmere in the world.
Cashmere’s fibres are derived from a particular goat, called Hircus goat. It is reared mainly in countries like Russia, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and India. The Inner Mongolia Cashmere is the finest cashmere that comes directly from Inner Mongolia, a land with a harsh climate. In this area is produced some 90% of global cashmere.
This type of cashmere is charcacterised by great softness of its fibres. Cashmere is produced in lands with very harsh and cold climate. (About 40° below zero). Goats use their two coats to protect themselves from frigid temperatures.
During the spring takes place the harvest of cashmere and the shepherds cut at first the external horsehair and then they gather the thinnest part of the coat. At this point, fibres of the two coats of goats are separated, because the real cashmere is the one that comes from “Duvet”(the nearest coat to goatskin).

 
The story of cashmere: from India to working Made in Italy

Cashmere takes its name from Kashmir region, land of India where are started first processing of this material.
This tissue so precious is used since ancient times, Roman times. In XIX century, Joseph Dawson, a Scottish manufacturer, creates a method to separate the finest fibres of goat to raw hairs,which shall be discarded. This process of mechanical finish was exported to China, that is the best country for the cashmere’s production nowadays.
This tissue is so soft and light thanks to its particular inner structure, which promotes the thermal insulation of fibres and it warms pleasantly who wore it.
The straordinary softness, the very high value and the warmth of cashmere have convinced merchants, kings and emperors to choose and wear proudly this precious material.
