YAK

Materials Yak is a superfine luxury fibre that is warmer and softer than merino wool and more breathable than cashmere.

Yak is a superfine luxury fibre that is warmer and softer than merino wool and more breathable than cashmere. Originally a little-used by-product, yak also represents a more sustainable alternative to comparable materials. The fibres are hand-combed once a year from free-ranging bovine animals living on the high-altitude Tibetan Plateau in Central Asia, and unlike cashmere production, yak herding does not have a harmful impact on the native grassland ecosystem. Our yak yarns are sourced through our partner Shokay, a social enterprise working directly with a cooperative of herders in the Qinghai province of Northwestern China. Their work in the community helps support local development and encourages social entrepreneurship among young people.

The grid is an essential element of our visual identity. It represents the notion of the archive and is used to organise and display information ranging from the names of plants to fabric weights and different types of materials used in our collections. These nine squares symbolise the separate parts that together form our world, and they are also the areas where we strive to make a difference.
