Cashmere Goats
Written by Kerstin Tschernigg - Friday, 08 November 2013



Being bred, raised and used in Central Asia for hundreds of years, the cashmere goat has had a wide effect on ecologically-friendly cashmere production.

The 7th Edition of Eco Fashion Week in Vancouver was once again an amazing display of the diversity in the fashion and garment industry.
