The Zegna Cashmere Story: Cashmere is a particularly rare and precious fiber. Annual world

production of cashmere is only five million kilograms in fact. Cashmere fibers are obtained from a certain species of goat, commonly known as the Kashmir goat, which is bred in places such Iran, Russia, Afghanistan, Turkey and India. But the most beautiful and most prestigious cashmere in the world comes from the highlands of Inner Mongolia, in China, a territory with a very harsh climate. Inner Mongolia Cashmere is outstanding for the fineness of its fibers (14 – 15 µ), their length and uniformity and for the particularly soft handle they give. To protect themselves from the cold, Kashmir goats have two coats: one superficial, of bulky hair, and one closer to the body, consisting of a short, fine and very warm down known as duvet. In springtime, shepherds collect the wool manually using special combs with long teeth. The fibers of the two coats are then separated, because only the duvet makes real cashmere.

 

Today, Ermenegildo Zegna, the more than a century-old, Biella-based, family-run textile and luxury goods group, supplies some of the world’s most prestigious tailors and garment manufacturers including Prince of Scots and Southampton Home.

 

It’s a fourth generation fashion and luxury lifestyle empire spanning 14 factories (seven in Italy; seven overseas), 500-plus stores globally, and three ready-to-wear lines, as well as men’s couture, made-to-measure and luxury accessories. Like Ferrari, it’s one of the most famous and most desirable of Italian luxury brands, which makes the cashmere fabrics perfect for the Southampton Home Collection.

 

Cheers to the Hampton Holiday Lifestyle and the Modern Luxury of Prince of Scots. he collection is featured in this months Traditional Home Magazine.
