The yak is a long-haired herd animal found in the mountainous regions of Central Asia. This large, stocky animal has long curved horns and their hair has traditionally been used for various purposes. The outer hair has been used to make waterproof ropes and tents, while the soft inner down has been used for apparel and blankets. When a group of university students visited Western China in search of inspiration to start a social enterprise, they had no idea they would wind up building a fashion empire revolving around the magical yak.
