Traceable cashmere & Total transparency
The Consinee Group fully understands the importance of responsible cashmere production from farming to final product, implementing a strict monitoring and careful testing system for every step of the cashmere development process, giving reassurance to customers they are receiving the best quality and most ethical cashmere they can buy.
Careful testing and monitoring of production by experienced staff means the quality of our yarn is completely assured. Working closely for many years with relevant government bodies Consinee Group has a well-established infrastructure to be able to offer full transparency
in the development of their yarns highlighting key sustainable elements in the traceable process.
Recycled cashmere
At Consinee Group we believe it is essential that every pound of fibre is precious and therefore used to its maximum capacity to preserve natural resources. The recycling of pre-consumer fibre and material generated in the yarn production process is very much the responsibility of the textile manufacturing industry and one that is often overlooked as an important sustainable practice.
We have been working with our carefully trained technicians to find ways to produce the same beautiful quality of cashmere as you would expect from Consinee group but using recycled fibre.
We have implemented systems to apply these new techniques and can now offer a range of recycled cashmere blends that maintain the same luxurious quality and can be dyed to any colour to fit your fashion needs whilst reducing the overall impact of production.
Since the world resources of raw materials are limited and the damage done to the environment to produce them is a reality, we believe being able to offer a high quality recycled cashmere range of yarns is an essential step in the sustainable direction for Consinee Group.
Currently we recommend not using more than 60% of recycled cashmere in a yarn, we are working on new technique to increase this, but for now it needs to be blended with additional fibres.
Along with our luxury natural fibres we believe in the development of yarns that feature other sustainable and socially responsible sourced fibres to preserve our natural resources and the planet.By working closely with eco fibre suppliers to source accredited and regulated alternatives that use new technologies to have a positive impact on the eco-system.
With the development of eco-friendly processing of functional fibres we are able to bring luxury to the consumer but in a sustainable way, enhancing nature and preserving resources.
Cupro is a cellulose fibre made from cotton linter, which is the short downy fibre that wraps around cotton seeds. It has a smooth multi-porous surface with outstanding moisture absorption and release, making it comfortable to the wearer. It is fully biodegradeable making it gentle and kind on bothe the environment and on the wearers skin.
Tencel is a cellulose fibre supplied by exclusively from Lenzing. It is extracted from the natural raw material of wood pulp. The fibre production itself is extremely eco friendly and yarns and fabrics made using Tencel have the added benefit of being more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. Tencel is naturally anti-bacterial, moisture wicking, quick dry and extremely soft, making it a perfect blending fibre with cashmere and luxury
Cotton cashmere is an important core product for spring summer for Consinee. We only use the very best premium responsibly sourced cotton for our cotton cashmere collection, however with new initiatives having been developed to offer more assurance of regulation in the production of cotton we are also able to offer all our standard cotton cashmere yarns as a more eco friendly alternative.
We have highlighted just a selection, but any of our cotton blended yarns can be special developed to your eco requirements, certain minimums would apply.
Cotton is one of the world’s essential natural fibres. It’s used by nearly everyone every day, supporting around 250 million people’s livelihoods. It’s a renewable natural resource, but only if managed responsibly. In 2005, a group of visionary organizations came together to help safeguard the future of cotton and developed an initiative called Better Cotton.
BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future, by developing Better Cotton as a sustainable mainstream commodity.
To use BCI cotton if you have to become part of the programme, which at Consinee we believe is essential to be part of and by joining are able to offer you traceable and ethically sourced cotton in our collection.
Organic cotton
Consinee Group sources premium organic cotton fibre that boasts supreme softness, excellent strength with a luxurious finish, perfect for blending with our cashmere.
The benefits of farming cotton organically are that the harmful impact of pesticides to the land and waterways is eliminated and therefore soil fertility and biodiversity is increased.
Organic producers have worked hard to improve practices of controlling water usage and minimize both contamination and excess wastage to preserve valuable water supplies.
To be certified to produce organic cotton blends we follow strict guidelines that are continually monitored to our processing practices.

- Organically cotton cannot use any harmful chemicals at any stage of the development process to avoid contamination.

- All agents and oils used in the spinning process must not be synthetic.

- Dyes used must be metal-free, low impact dyes that produce very little wastage and run off.

By following these practices using organic cotton is better for the environment but also better for the wearer next to skin.
