Cashmere is the epitome of luxury and elegance, and when it comes to cashmere, no one does it better than GOBI Cashmere. This Mongolian company has been producing high-quality cashmere products for over 40 years, and its secret to success lies in its attention to detail in every step of the production process.
GOBI Cashmere has a long-standing relationship with Mongolian herders who provide them with the finest quality cashmere fibers. The herders raise their goats in a natural and sustainable way, ensuring that the goats are well-cared for and ethically treated. GOBI Cashmere works closely with these herders to promote sustainable grazing practices and ensure that their goats are not overgrazed or harmed in any way.
By sourcing its raw cashmere exclusively from Outer Mongolia, GOBI Cashmere is able to ensure that its products are of the highest quality and free from any impurities or harmful chemicals. They also have complete control over the production process, from sourcing to finishing, which allows them to maintain their high standards for quality and sustainability.
The production process at GOBI can be broken down into the following steps:
Sourcing: GOBI Cashmere sources the finest cashmere fibers from Mongolian herders who ensure their goats are well-cared for and ethically treated. The fibers are sustainably sourced to minimize environmental impact.
Sorting, washing, and de-hairing: The fibers are then sorted by their 4 natural colors of cashmere, their width, and quality. Then they are washed and de-haired to remove any impurities and to ensure that only the softest and finest fibers are used.
Dyeing: The sorted fibers are dyed using natural dyes whenever possible, including plant extracts and minerals, and modern dyeing techniques, including computerized dyeing machines, to ensure consistent and accurate colors.
Spinning: The dyed fibers are then spun into yarn using traditional and modern techniques to create a strong and durable yarn that will stand the test of time.
Weaving or Knitting: The yarn is then woven or knitted using state-of-the-art machines, including twill, jersey, and herringbone weaves, as well as cable and rib knits. GOBI Cashmere also processes woven fabrics to create a wider variety of fabrics for its products.
Cutting and Sewing: The finished woven fabric is processed, then cut and sewn into products such as coats, blazers, and other garments. GOBI Cashmere pays meticulous attention to detail during this process to ensure the highest quality finished product.
Finishing: Once the products are knitted, woven and sewn together, they undergo a range of treatments, including washing, steaming, and pressing, to create a smooth and luxurious finish.
At each step of the production process, GOBI Cashmere conducts quality checks to ensure that the fibers, yarn, and finished products meet their high standards for quality and durability. These checks include visual inspections, measurements, and tests to evaluate the softness, strength, and color accuracy of the fibers and finished products.
By implementing these quality control measures, GOBI Cashmere is able to ensure that its products are of the highest quality and can provide customers with luxurious, durable, and long-lasting cashmere products.
Throughout the entire production process, GOBI Cashmere puts extra attention to sustainability and social responsibility, ensuring that its products are both luxurious and environmentally conscious. They use natural dyes and eco-friendly washing methods, and they work closely with local communities to promote ethical practices and support the Mongolian cashmere industry.
