IMPORTANT TO US

SUSTAINABILITY

 

 We are driven to improve the production of Cashmere goods, and that means

protecting our planet and making sustainable choices for our future world. Since

launching in 2019, we have sourced the best Cashmere yarns to ensure designs

of the highest quality, as well as producing in limited quantities to reduce excess.

Having a positive impact on the environment is paramount to us, and we have

sought our materials and packaging from companies who share our values around

ethics and sustainability. Furthermore, our yarn suppliers are part of the

SFA, the Sustainable Fibre Alliance.

The Sustainable Fibre Alliance is a global multi-stakeholder initiative with a

mission to ensure the long-term viability of the cashmere sector.They promote

the SFA Cashmere Standard to encourage the adoption of responsible production

practices that minimise environmental impact, safeguard herder livelihoods and   

meet high animal welfare standards

 

 

 

ANIMAL WELFARE

 

The SFA recognises that maintaining animal health and well-being is crucial to

cashmere producers’ way of life and future

prosperity. Our Animal Husbandry Code of Practice helps to

monitor and improve welfare practices of Mongolia’s nomadic herders, while our 

new joint code of practice with ICCAW will target farm-based cashmere

production in Inner Mongolia.

Both codes of practice are based on the internationally recognised Five Freedoms

of animal welfare:

 +Freedom from thirst and hunger

+Freedom from discomfort

+Freedom from pain, injury, and disease

+Freedom to express most normal behaviour

+Freedom from fear and distress

 

 

 

 

 

ENVIROMENT

 

 How are we protecting rangelands?

The SFA’s Rangeland Stewardship Code of Practice ensures

that rangelands are managed in a way that minimises the risk of pasture

degradation and protects wildlife. This is done by promoting collective

action and a return to traditional land management practices by herding

communities. The code of practice is based on each herding community

coming up with a rangeland management plan to improve pasture condition

and conserve native wildlife. The plan must state clear boundaries for communal

grazing and identify areas for reserve pasture.

 +The herding plan states the clear boundaries for herding

+Herders assess their grazing area.

+Herders identify rotational grazing movements

to avoid overgrazing.

+Herders identify areas for wildlife protection

and habitat restoration.

 

 

   

BEST QUALITY CASHMERE

FROM ORGANIC PASTURES

 

D/Luca scarves start with goats grazing on organic pastures

of Inner Mongolia. We use white cashmere which has the finest threads and the

softest property and is considered one of the best kinds of cashmere.

Our certified sustainable fiber is collected from the goats by combing the goat

during the spring when the fiber starts to shed off of the goat. De-hairing the fiber

to get the soft hairs is sorted by hand and one factor that contributes to the

relatively low global production rate of cashmere -

approximately 6,500 metric tons of pure cashmere

annually, as opposed to 2 million metric tons of sheep’s wool.

Value and cherish this fine superb quality.

 

 

 

TRADITION & TECHNOLOGY

 

Our Partners in Inner Mongolia are located in the secluded

countryside that borders the banks of the Yangtze River. We proud ourselves and 

identify with the company’s traditionally strict dedication

to production quality including the natural form of cashmere

with sustainable and certified yarns by the SFA, (The Sustainable

Fiber Alliance),combined with the use of the latest technology.

That technologically innovative mindset is the enabler for

producing the new generation of D/Luca scarves.
