NAADAM Cashmere is a startup company that is setting a new precedent when it comes to manufacturing luxury clothing. Its goal is to democratise cashmere. The company prioritises transparent business practices. Each of its articles of clothing is obtained through responsible methods from native goat farmers in Mongolia.
In addition to obtaining the goat’s hair from the farmers in Mongolia, the manufacturing of the actual cashmere sweaters along with their other products is done in a factory within one of the cities in Mongolia.
To fulfill another aspect of the company’s founding principles, it has partnered with the Gobi Revival Fund to support MongoliAid. This is a prevalent NGO within the Mongolian community that provides aid in the form of blankets and other supplies to those that are in desperate need.
In addition to all their other efforts, NAADAM Cashmere also built NAADAM Park in 2018. In the hopes of rebalancing the country’s struggling ecosystem, the company planted 2,000 trees in the park complete with gazebos and areas for children to play. The company established a place of community where people within a 500-mile radius would travel to visit.
