Cashmere is obtained by combing nomadic Mongolian goats fed on wild grass. The product is suited for premium apparel articles, with high quality raw materials, and healthy for people and the environment.
The spinning of the yarn in the Cascami Seta plant of Botto Giuseppe is designed as a sustainable production system, fully powered on green energy through its hydroelectric plant and rooftop solar panels, which produce over 100% of the company’s needs.
The dyeing system allows for yarn to have very solid, lasting colors. In addition, the quality of product enables that after its first use, it can be sold or transferred for further uses within the textile industry, reducing the need for new raw materials.
