Mongolia remains a fascinating mystery to many people with
its historic associations being the Gobi Desert and the mighty Genghis Khan.
In many ways time has stood still in a country where farmers' lives appear not to have changed during the past millennium. More than half the population is involved in the agriculture sector – tending to their horses, cows, sheep, camels and cashmere goats – a most precious heritage.
These Mongolian herdsmen have remained true to their traditional methods of raising goats, who graze the rich natural pastures, which provide the unique Mongolian cashmere. Today, ancient methods of creating ultra-luxurious fabric are appreciated and prized more than ever – they quietly challenge the scientifically-based, mass-produced fabrics that have won their leading place in contemporary fashion.
