SEND US YOUR 100% CASHMERE AND WE WILL SEND YOU A $100 RYAN ROCHE CREDIT CODE TO USE ON A NEW PURCHASE ON OUR WEBSITE. IT'S THAT SIMPLE.
WHY YOU MAY ASK?
Cashmere is a precious fiber. Did you know, millions of cashmere sweaters are sold in America each year and many of those shortly after are perceived as waste or perceived to have reached their end of life. We want to be a part of changing this. We believe that today’s cashmere products are tomorrow’s cashmere resources, the value of this precious material must be protected, maintained and recovered and in this effort we minimize the waste and the environmental impacts of producing new. This process can be defined as circular and we believe it is the way of the future for Cashmere. The current global cashmere industry desperately needs to be disrupted and reset- rebalanced. The current global demand, where China and Mongolia lead the way, has transformed once-lush grasslands into arid moonscapes, unleashing some of the worst dust storms in East Asian history, as well as a spoiling of the region’s water, soil, and air. Animal welfare is in a dire state and change needs to happen starting now.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Send us your 100% cashmere, in any size, shape or age, from Ryan Roche or any brand and we will recycle them into new, rejuvenated cashmere yarns, reducing the high demand for new raw cashmere and decreasing the carbon footprint of production. From here a full circular production can happen where they are knit into new garments and you can be a part of the change that so desperately needs to happen.
Imagine out of the millions of cashmere sweaters sold in America each year, how many are sitting in landfills in the US today or even larger globally. All of these could have been collected, recycled and remade into new.
Recycled cashmere can live many lives through recycling. Up until recently a healthy balance producing raw cashmere materials has existed for 500 years. We are invested in being a leading voice and example of a new way to work in this space with a demand for cashmere that is not easing up. We want to do our part to help to regain the healthy balance in the cashmere industry and believe that a circular model is the way forward.
