100% hand made
All of our products pass through knowledgeable, loving and experienced hands from the extraction of the cashmere wool to its completion. We find this respectful approach to craftsmanship deeply satisfying. We can see how the personal and human manufacturing process is reflected in the garment. As daily companions, our scarves and collection pieces radiate protection, warmth, lightness and beauty to their wearers.
Trustful, fair cooperation
We have been producing our cashmere collection in Kathmandu since the beginning. In trustful cooperation and under excellent, modern conditions our collections are created in this country, whose diversity, resilience and beauty inspire us.
We are happy to be able to contribute to the preservation and further development of traditional handicraft techniques and to offer women in particular a protected, secure workplace, thus helping them to achieve a self-determined place in society.
The shimmering sheen and soft drape of the luxurious natural fiber silk should accompany us even after washing. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to cool temperatures (ideally 20° to 30°) when washing - whether by hand or with the appropriate program of the washing machine. A special detergent for delicate fabrics is recommended. When washing by hand, the entire textile should be washed each time to avoid unsightly water spots.
The silk article must not be spun, it is best to dry it lying on a towel or hang it on a hanger.
Steam iron on the lowest setting and turn inside out - and your favorite companion is ready to wear!
As a family business, friendly hunting has the opportunity to design and adapt all processes ourselves. Since we follow the idea of mindfulness, we work exclusively with suppliers who are committed to treating people, animals and natural resources with equal mindfulness.
Sustainable action is most likely to result from raw materials that grow back. Since we value cashmere as an absolute luxury product, we only use the undercoat of the cashmere goat, which is carefully combed out during the natural coat change cycles in spring and autumn. This creates a product in harmony with the natural conditions.
In our manufactories pigments that have dissolved in the process of dyeing and printing are collected by a filtration system, the filtered water can thus be returned to the cycle again and again in a resource-saving way.
In the logistics of our high-quality product, we cannot yet completely dispense with plastic. In the packaging and in the stores, we consistently rely on paper and cardboard or canvas bags. We produce our lookbooks with natural paper.
We believe in a beautiful existence for all
Due to the trustful cooperation with the manufacturers from the beginning and countless trips to the production sites, Nepal has become our second home. In order to contribute to the positive development of society, especially for the youth, we founded the association Namasté e.V. in 2008 and run our orphanage "Amazing Namasté" in Kathmandu on a voluntary basis. All children we take in receive a promise from us that we will take care of them until they are able to do so on their own. Therefore, our orphans are in our safe care - at least until they are adults. Until then, with education, security and love, we create the best conditions for a life with a future.
