A yarn with a story

We know the nomadic herders of the Tibetan Plateau very well. We have been living and working with them for more than twenty years. By now we have become a bit nomadic, too. We have learned to appreciate their traditions, to respect what they love and believe in, to share their way of life and work. What we’re doing together is more than simply purchasing the fiber obtained from the combing of the baby yaks and the cashmere goats Together we are contributing towards the future of a nomadic population representing one of the most ancient in the world.

From the Tibetan Plateau to the Italian Alps

This is the story of a journey that started on the Tibetan Plateau with its nomadic people, and landed in Italy, at the foot of the Alps, where the traditional culture of yarn-making meets style. It’s the story of a natural and human wonder. It’s the story of mountain peoples united in their ability to appreciate the beauty and strength of a natural fiber that is among the most precious and most rare in the world.
