I was introduced to a very clever new brand NAADAM Nomadic Cashmere by its founder Matthew Scanlan. The brand was founded as an effort to support a group of nomadic herders that his business partners had lived with in Mongolia for a time. The cashmere is the highest quality, sourced from the outer plains of Mongolia. This raw cashmere then undergoes a process to be made into a beautifully died, soft yarn used to make the beautifully knit sweaters. Profits are then re-invested into livestock insurance programs for the herders, thus stabilizing their community and economy. The project is being funded by Kickstarter, and you can currently purchase their items at wholesale price.
