The Italian company Loro Piana knows everything about cashmere. At the dawn of its history in the 17th century, its owners traded in woolen threads, already in the middle of the 20th century, the brand became a household name in the fashion world and began to be associated with extremely soft, light and warm cashmere. For its manufacture, wool is used from Capra hircus sheep from Mongolia and Chinese Inner Mongolia.
Luc Jacquet expertly spoke about how the representatives of six generations of the Loro Piana family traveled to the most remote corners of the world in search of ideal raw materials, what difficulties the company's designers and shepherds face in their work, and what are the features of the resulting product.
