At Hypechase, we guarantee that the cashmere, yak, camel, and other fibers are produced in a socially responsible manner and 100% free of animal cruelty. The animals are combed manually following the traditional method which doesn’t hurt the animal. Our suppliers actively participate in the well-being of the herder families by providing medical assistance, scholarships, and educational programs. In Ulaanbaatar, the workers manufacturing your garments are never underage and are paid higher than the average salary. We make an effort to hire women in need, especially single mothers, and make sure the work atmosphere is enjoyable for everyone.
Here are the different fibers we work with:
- Cashmere (multiple colors, qualities)
- Yak (wool, down, baby down, different colors)
- Camel (baby camel down)
- Sheep (down from a rare and soft breed called Sartuul)
Transforming raw fibers into yarn and yarn into garments can be made in different manners. Over the years, we built a strong knowledge base on who can do what, and who is good at it. Whether you need to spin massive quantities of yarn, or knit an extremely difficult garment by hand, we have the right network to help you.
Our manufacturing offer includes:
- Machine spinning (different twists and gauges)
- Machine knitting (Stoll, Shima Seiki, Flying Tiger)
- Hand spinning (by women having 20 years of experience)
- Hand knitting (by women having 20 years of experience)
- Contemporary felting (with cashmere or sheep wool)
Words are important, but proof is necessary to guarantee the work is done right. Our partners, especially the Sustainable Cashmere Union, provide meticulously updated documents to offer proof of a clean origin for each Mongolian cashmere or yak fiber. These documents give evidence that necessary regulations have been applied, step by step, throughout the process from the herder to the manufacturer. Building on our partner’s verification process, Hypechase is going even further.
When you order anything from us, we give you a QR code to access the entire process, showing when and from which cooperative (region/group of herders) your cashmere comes from, where it has been cleaned, and where it has been processed and manufactured. This code can be given to your clients as a guarantee of sustainability.
