PRODUCT & SUSTAINABILITY
What ply is your cashmere?
Ply is the number of cashmere threads twisted together to make the cashmere yarn. Our Cashmere ranges from 2-Ply to 8-Ply. The greater ply signifies a greater warmth of the cashmere.
What is gauge and knit?
Gauge refers to the number of stitches and rows per inch in the specific cashmere article – essentially it is a measure of how tightly the cashmere yarn is knitted. The smaller the gauge typically signifies a lighter and more delicate fabric, while a larger gauge signifies a heavier and more durable fabric. All of our cashmere ranges from 6-12 gauges.
What grade is your Cashmere?
Cashmere is classified into grades – A being the greatest quality and C being the lowest quality. The grade of cashmere is determined by the microns (diameter) and the length of the cashmere fibers. The cashmere fibers that our pieces are composed of are 14-16 microns and 34-36mm in length making CASHE Grade A in nature.
Does your brand uphold fair trade? Sustainable practices? How are the animals treated?
FAIR TRADE: We cherish our process, from ideation to delivery, guided by all those involved. We know that none of this could be possible without our herders and manufacturers, which is why we pay our herders fully in advance and all craftsmen and women employed by our manufacturer are paid an equal and fair-wage. In addition to delivering beautiful, sustainable and biodegradable cashmere to our customers, we deliver kindness and generosity to the nation of Nepal. We pride ourselves on philanthropy, and donate 10% of all orders to the Nepal Youth Foundation that brings Freedom, Health, Shelter and Education to Nepal’s most impoverished children. We strive to empower global communities – socially, environmentally and economically.
SUSTAINABLE: Our business model is circular, from the herdering and manufacturing process, to transporting our goods from Nepal, all the way to gracefully delivering our products to consumers - we are continuously educating ourselves and applying best practices of sustainability. In our process, we pride ourselves on small inventories to reduce water, waste, carbon and pollution. With our cashmere being made in Nepal, we eliminate a lengthy transport of cashmere yarn to our manufacturing facilities. Given the nature of cashmere being a natural fiber, we do not have any products containing microfibers, therefore our products do not cause micro-plastic pollution. In addition to never mass-producing, we have a small range of color variants offered to reduce the amount of water and pollution used in the dying process. The wastewater of the dying process for textile companies is the most polluting of all industry sectors. We have taken this into account and have found ways to reduce this waste by managing our inventory and using the same water from the dying process of one item across multiple items. We use low impact dyes that are AZO free.
We also have taken the environment into account with our packaging, styling and branding elements. On each clothing item, we have a 100% natural cotton tag that is screen-printed and sewn into each garment by hand. In our lifestyle photoshoots, we style CASHE with second-hand accessories or pieces from our personal wardrobes. We use environmentally conscious packaging for all of our outgoing shipments, including our mailing envelopes, branded stickers, tissue paper, and tape.
Most importantly, and what is often overlooked by brands and consumers, is the shipping process of goods coming in from foreign countries, particularly emerging markets. A simple reality of business today is in the process of importing goods, you emit greenhouse gases like carbon. While we can’t avoid this, we are 100% committed to working with freight forwarding companies that pledge to limit their carbon footprint in a verifiable and measurable way.
100% CRUELTY-FREE: Our cashmere originates from free-roaming goats of the Himalayan Mountains. Nepali herders bi-annually hand-comb these goats using cruelty-free methods. This gentle process focuses on brushing and collecting the soft undercoat of the goats.
