KiruKiru, in fact, spans across and, at the same time, joins two continents, Asia and Europe.
Created in Asia, where real, pure cashmere was born.
High quality cashmere is obtained from processing the hair of the Capra Hircus, which lives on the Tibetan plateaus, in the Himalayan region and mainly in Mongolia at an altitude of about 4000 meters.
The Capra Hircus, has a particularly fine, soft, warm wool that allows it to face the harsh winters of that part of the world, protecting it from temperatures that reach -40 degrees.
The wool is collected during moulting or after shearing. It is then, in fact, that the hairs are selected, by choosing the highest quality from which to process the cashmere that is cleaned and then woven into fibres.
The extremely rare and prized baby cashmere is exclusively obtained from the underfleece of Hircus goat kids. Characterised by an unparalleled lightness and softness, it is available in limited quantities, exclusively for the production of exceptional garments, and solely intended for a few markets and a few prestigious fashion lines.
This is where and how KiruKiru shatoosh is born; in these lands where Marco Polo made the first great discoveries leading to the current world of textiles.
It is said, in fact, that in the 13th Century, inside some caves in Mongolia, Marco Polo discovered drawings of wild goats domesticated by man. It is therefore likely that, even in very distant times, shepherds raised these goats capable of providing a particularly warm wool. A real blessing for those regions with incredibly harsh winters. With great amazement, Europe only discovered this prized wool in the 19th Century, which then took the name of kasmir. The highlands of Ladakh and Tibet in the Himalayas are the authentic cashmere wool regions.
KiruKiru arrives from Asia to Italy for the final “Made in Italy” touch.
It is in Italy, in fact, that dyeing undergoes final processing with a very complex artisanal method, which means that it will not lose its colour intensity even in case of long sun exposure, or after numerous washes.
