CARDIGAN TAWI MOSS

150,00 

Hey there, let me introduce you to this special basic-but-special cashmere piece TAWI. Simple, plain and dressed for every occasion. With the supersoft, ribbed cashmere fabric and the slightly cropped and slim fit you are always good to go. Highlight: the buttons made from nacre for the extra sparkle!

FYI: the name TAWI comes from the river which has its origin in Jammu and Kashmir- a region between China, India and Pakistan. TAWI rises up high and floats through the Kashmir/Cashmere heart and spreads water and life. In this case, TAWI is not only the connection between countries, TAWI is connecting you with your daily comfort.

Color: moss

TAWI is part of the HANDLE WITH CARE collection in cooperation with rauwm.

MATERIAL
75% recycled cashmere / recyceltes Cashmere
25% merino wool / Merinowolle (RWS certified)
Cashmere is one of the finest and highest quality animal fibers. It originally comes from the cashmere goat (although our cashmere fibers are all recycled, yay!). The quality of the wool depends on the height the goats are living at- the higher the better. Why? Because there is a difference in terms of the structure of the fiber: the higher, the finer and stronger the fiber, the better quality-wise.
SUSTAINABILTY
Over the past decades, cashmere fibers and items have become more and more popular and are now used in the whole textile industry. That‘s why the overgrazing and overbreeding of cashmere goats in Mongolia is increasing dramatically. The result: A negative impact on animals and the environment.

To protect animals and the environment, we only use recycled cashmere fibers. At the same time, we are longing to create a circular economy, reduce waste and extend the life of already produced garments.

PRODUCTION
The yarn is made in Italy and obtained from post-consumer waste. The pre-owned garments are selected from all over the world and sorted by color and composition. The recycling is based on a mechanical process. The garments are shredded and then spun into a new yarn.
During the recycling process, the fibers are partially damaged and thus lose strength and quality. Clothes made of 100% recycled cashmere are less durable and therefore less sustainable. To produce high quality garments, „virgin“ fibers are added to the recycled cashmere wool.
In this case, the second material is Merino wool, which comes from the merino sheep. Merino wool has similar properties as cashmere: soft, light and keeping you warm. The used merino wool is RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified – which ensures compliance with specific animal welfare criteria. This includes f.e. fair animal hold in barn and enough pasture, no mulesing, strict rules in castration andanesthesia and many more.

CARE
TAWI is made of recycled cashmere:

  • Please do not wash cashmere that often, cashmere is a high-end fabric and needs to be treated like a queen
  • The cashmere fabric is most likely happy for just hanging around. After a day of wearing the piece, please just hang it outside or over a chair to air out
  • please do handwash (your machine can manage handwash, too!) with cold or half heated water and wool detergent
  • After handwash, please wring out the rest of water carefully and lay the piece on your clothes horse or on a towl on the floor. Cashmere does not like to hang when it is still wet.
FIT
Slim fit.
