FEELING THE SENSE WITH FAIR TRADE CASHMERE

CASHMERE AS A MATTER OF TRUST

Today, FTC® is not only a cashmere brand, but also a cultural project with sustainable structures from correct keeping of animals to the final end product. FTC® is therefore very proud of all those involved in this project and the respect they have for each other. From farmer to customer, FTC® lives fair trade. Long-standing business partnerships play an important role in ensuring the consistently high quality of the products, as does constant monitoring of the standards of the goods.


VALUE CHAIN

Climate-Neutral Products and Transparency

Everything starts in the heights of Shaanxi in China. The animals are fed on alfalfa and corn, which FTC® grows near the farm. With a specially developed set of animal farming rules, FTC® also takes responsibility for treating its animals well. To further ensure animal welfare, FTC® cooperates with national universities and has the health of the cashmere goats regularly checked by specialists.

The fine underhairs of the cashmere goats are obtained annually at the change of season from winter to summer with a lot of patience and care. The knowledge about the cashmere goat is passed down through generations by our employees.

From carding and dyeing, to spinning and knitting – all process steps of the processing to the fashion piece take place in the own manufactory in the Chinese province of Hebei. The own manufactory enables transparency, control and overview for FTC®. Only very few middlemen, for product ingredients like buttons, are involved along the way.
