State Cashmere was founded in 2017 in New York City, but we have been in the cashmere industry for generations. I come from a family of shepherds. I long to share with you the beautiful life of growing up in Inner Mongolia, grandparents who were shepherds, and our raising of our cashmere goats. Because of my family heritage, and my passion for cashmere, we bring you the finest cashmere basics from the heart of my homeland, with integrity and honesty.
Unlike most cashmere brands in the fashion industry, we work directly with the shepherds from Inner Mongolia. These are trusted relationships, and we will never work with middlemen, cashmere traders or brokers. They traditionally drive up costs, leave the shepherds struggling to make a living, and charge a very high price to the customer.
State Cashmere will always be radically different. Our promise to you is not only to provide a very good living wage to all our herders, but to empower our shepherds, helping their businesses thrive, practicing sustainability, and bring you 100% cashmere for less. We are creating a better cashmere industry, and we are doing our part to democratize luxury fashion.
We want you to meet our goats. You will fall in love with them, especially the babies as they learn to walk. Our herders practice a loving and humane treatment of their goats. All the cashmere goats are groomed and given a healthy diet with grass and clean water. They get plenty of exercise and play, and are part of the shepherd’s family. We want to share with you a live feed of our baby goats on the farm. Check back soon for that!
The best cashmere comes from Inner Mongolia. Inner Mongolia is quite remote and isolated from the world manufacturing community. The land is home to one of the world’s oldest domesticated livestock - the cashmere goat, a sustainable source of raw material for fine textiles.

We specialize in cashmere basics, not trends. We believe the world needs to invest in slow fashion. This is not only more sustainable for the environment, it means that your cashmere staples are seasonless and with proper care, can last you a lifetime.
We're not into blends. We're committed to only using 100% pure cashmere for our pieces. Our commitment to no blends not only results in a piece more comfortable for you, but it's also more sustainable for the environment. In addition, we have eliminated any excess packaging. We call that a win-win.
