Because we all need softness.


Mohair is known worldwide as "the noble fibre" or "the diamond fibre" - one of the finest, most sustainable and exclusive natural fibres in the world. Mohair comes from Angora goats that roam on the wide open plains of the Karoo in South Africa, the largest producers of fine quality Mohair in the world. The goats are shorn twice a year. For us it is important to have the knowledge of the origin and source of our mohair products and we only work with the reputable farmers having the certificate of complience, compied with mohair industry sustainable guidelines. The added beauty of mohair is that it is renevable, natural resource, and providing a sustainable production chain between animal and human.
