We are excited to announce that starting this season, all of our 100% cashmere styles—from our cozy sweaters to iconic Travel Wraps—are made entirely from fiber traceable to regions of Inner Mongolia and will always be produced with transparent ethical and environmental practices. It’s the same cashmere you know and love—only now it officially meets new sustainable, traceable standards.

SUSTAINABLE CASHMERE

Cashmere is prized for its softness, lightness, and excellent insulating properties. The fact that there are a limited number of goats that each farmer can own is also part of what makes cashmere such a luxurious and sought-after fiber.  How your cashmere is produced matters, and we’re proud to offer the finest quality cashmere that has been controlled at every point in the manufacturing stage. Traceable cashmere relies on meticulous record-keeping and full transparency from farm to finished garment.

NOT ALL CASHMERE IS CREATED EQUAL

The best quality cashmere comes from specific regions of Inner Mongolia where the temperature fluctuates from -40° in winter to over 30° in the summer. The cashmere goats have adapted to this climate by developing a double fleece and their long, fine undercoat hair makes for the most premium yarn. Our manufacturing partner attends The Shearing Festival in Inner Mongolia each year to ensure that we’re receiving the best cashmere.

A HIGHER STANDARD

In the 24 years since our launch, the quality of our cashmere never wavered. By going through the rigorous testing process, we’re able to guarantee the use of 100% pure cashmere. Our manufacturer also keeps detailed records of all goats, herders, and herd information, which gives us the ability to trace all cashmere fibers from herder to final garment.



OUR FACTORY

We are only as good as the partners we work with—and we are fortunate enough to have been working with the same factory since the very beginning. In turn, the factory has a valuable relationship with the herders they buy our cashmere from. As of this season, our factory has received two important certifications that are necessary to provide traceable cashmere.

THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD®
THE GOOD CASHMERE STANDARD®

The first is The Good Cashmere Standard,® which means that our factory is following the correct protocols for the cashmere goats, the lives of the farmers and farming communities, and the environment in which they live. The Standard was created to improve the welfare of cashmere goats with respect to the Five Freedoms, as defined by the Farm Animal Welfare Council, as well as the economic, social, and ecological conditions experienced by cashmere farmers, their families, and communities in Inner Mongolia. The Standard follows three main principles: promote animal welfare in cashmere production, support cashmere farmers to secure a sustainable source of income, and protect the environment.

THE SUSTAINABILITY FIBRE ALLIANCE

The second certification is The Sustainability Fibre Alliance, which promotes the SFA Cashmere Standard—the world’s first holistic sustainability standard for cashmere—to ensure that suppliers are following responsible production practices that minimize environmental impact, safeguard herder livelihoods, and meet high animal welfare standards. As animal welfare is an integral component of sustainability, all of the farms that we use comply with animal welfare and environmental practices to provide full transparency throughout the supply chain.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY JOURNEY

At White + Warren, we’re committed to sustainability. Moving to 100% traceable cashmere is just one step on our journey to reduce our environmental impact. As we continue to do more, we look forward to continuing to share updates with you in the coming months.
