We have worked hard to source the best quality fabrics from all over the world to deliver a range of the best quality, design and function.
We use the best quality grade of cashmere.
Cashmere wool, usually simply known as cashmere, is a fibre obtained from cashmeregoats and other types of goat. Common usage defines the fibre as a wool but in fact it is a hair, and this is what gives it its unique characteristics
We are using tweed from Scotland.
Tweed is a woollen fabric, of a soft, open, flexible texture, resembling cheviot or homespun, but more closely woven. It is usually woven with a plain weave, twill or herringbone structure. Colour effects in the yarn may be obtained by mixing dyed wool before it is spun.
We are using fur from licensed dealers.

MINK (MUSTELA VISON)
