In order to maintain the sustainability of the land, herders move from one side of the mountain to the other during seasonal transitions.
When crafting our unique collection at w.awake, eco-friendly fabrication is always at the front of our minds.We strive to source sustainable material such as cashmere, wool, cotton, silk, bamboo, linen, and recycled synthetics. We’ve been closely working with herders and craftsmen all over the world to develop quality fabric that last longer.
Our highly esteemed manufacturer uses state-of-the-art technology, equipment and management methods throughout the production process, minimizing pollution while maintaining a high level of quality and innovation.
Our artisans begin by dehairing the cashmere to remove coarse guard hair, leaving only the softest, most supple fibers. The next step is spinning, by which the strands are twisted together, increasing the strength and vitality of the yarn. This yarn is then carefully woven into our trademark cashmere, offering a breathable yet cozy material that is the perfect blend of warmth and elegance. Because we use highly desirable white natural cashmere, we can omit a damaging step in the coloring process that many other dyed cashmeres must endure, ensuring that our luxurious cashmere pieces are durable and lasting. Not simply an indulgence, but an investment in sophisticated and essential clothing that lasts.
