With a long and storied past. Cashmere is enduringly chic and the most luxe natural fibre in the world. Originally collected from high altitude goats in Nepal and Kashmir (where the name originated), the ultra soft textile hit the mainstream in the 1920s. Renowned designers- Patou, Chanel, Mainbocher and Schiaparelli made it a must-have with sweaters and twinsets crafted from the delicate fabric. Long prized for its endless warmth and ability to hold shape, Cashmere is now used for everything from coats to sweatpants (exceptionally extravagant ones) to all manner of knitwear.
