A wholesale textile Italian company located in Piedmont region, manufactures an exclusive 100% baby yak wool keeping together ethical and sustainable elements with advanced technologies. They processes the finest fibers ethically sourced directly from Tibetan nomads living in the highest pastures of Tibetan Plateau. Their main current products include woven and knitted accessories for men and women, a household line, an exclusive collection of fabrics for tailors and designers, underwear garments for the mountains, and a wide collection of yarns for hand knitting. The company, a cooperative business venture, arose under the long experience of its partners and grew up thanks to a deep relationship with Tibetan nomads, in accordance with the desire of the company to support local economies in a sustainable way while making a profit on global market. The initial idea was to bring together two exceptional assets: the premium undercoat of young Tibetan yaks and cashmere goats and the revered ancient traditions and craftsmanship of the Biella- city textile's district. The fiber/coat of baby yaks is warmer than the best merino wool and as soft as cashmere. Their thermal undercoats keep these incredible animals warm even when the temperature drops to 40 degrees below zero. Because the yak's undercoat is one of the toughest natural fibres in the world, its processing requires advanced technology and delicate handling. To obtain a truly unique product, the company limited the production to baby yak wool and to a small quantity of Tibetan cashmere, another material with limited availability. Sustainability and ethics together with innovation, quality, advanced technologies and a deep respect on environmental impact are key factors for the success of the company. The company is looking for distribution service agreements and commercial agency agreements to expand their commercial network in targeted countries especially in the ethical fashion sector but also in high level textiles products. More specifically, they are looking for country representatives, sales responsible, retailers, communication agencies. Their objective is to stay on the path marked out, seeking partnerships with international designers and experts to develop, further, a unique brand with name recognition. The product is currently available in China, Europe and in the United States.
Innovations and advantages
The company works directly with Tibetan Nomads cooperatives without intermediaries at a really fair price with strong impact on their living conditions. The baby yak is uniquely soft because they select directly the young animals with the best quality wool. Baby yaks are combined in spring just before the down fall spontaneously on the grassland, therefore, therefore the fiber can be considered “vegan”. The processing is 100% made in Italy with a high quality level assured by the artisans of Biella’s textile district.
