Our renowned Collen & Clare cashmere and knitwear is produced in Kathmandu as part of a charity organisation called Ochre. With strong believes in fair trade and investing in the local community, Ochre employees mostly local female workers, who are the main income earners within their family. They receive complete machine training, excellent working conditions and pay to ensure they can look after their families. Importing only the finest cashmere yarn from Mongolia the ladies knit the basic design into the correct shape and style using pre-made design patterns. The garment is then dyed, assembled and hand finished, passing quality control before being shipped.
