new luxury ethical cashmere ecommerce website launched

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

Intune Media are pleased to showcase our latest website www.cocoonu.com

We recommend a visit to this unique website for purchase of the finest ethical cashmere from outer mongolia for your loved ones. CocoonU source from nomadic herders who inhabit the Steppes of Outer Mongolia - a far cry from mass produced items from China. The love affair starts with the first touch.

Special

Like all luxury goods, public and industry perceptions often assume that all is equal and that the best is the best. Cashmere is cashmere surely? Well only in the same way that wine is wine!

To ensure that your cashmere items are the absolute finest, there can only be one source - Outer Mongolia and CocoonU in particular.

CocoonU combines classic design with only the best raw materials and an ethical trading model. All of our products are made from 100% pure cashmere from Outer Mongolia. The severe winters in Outer Mongolia results in Cashmere fibres that are thinner and longer than that from other sources with fewer indents along the length of the fibre - this makes for super soft yet resilient yarns and the unmistakable ‘soapy’ feel. Cheaper cashmere often feels very soft due to the numerous machanical processes it has been through but it will not have the lifespan of finest cashmere such as ours.

The Cashmere goats which supply the raw material for CocoonU products are raised organically using centuries old nomadic herding methods and are combed rather than shorn. We don’t mix inferior hair and yarn with our cashmere and refuse to compromise on quality.

Story

“Having spent most of my life working abroad and travelling I experienced a wealth of cultures, beliefs and personalities. My experiences made me realise that to buy the best product once and gain a lifetime of use was an ethical and valuable approach to life.

The source of these products gives us all something to think about - the self-reliant and family oriented way of life of nomadic herders leaves a light footprint on the planet whilst supplying outstanding raw materials for your cashmere.

Our human resources policies are exceptional and rival the HR systems used in Western Europe. Our staff are paid more than the minimum wage, have the right to join a union, go on strike, and enjoy freedoms unheard of across the border in China - where most cashmere is currently sourced. Even cashmere ‘Made in Scotland’ is often manufactured using yarn from China.

In bringing this luxurious yet eco-friendly range to you I hope that in the coming years you will find that you can’t go wrong with a CocoonU purchase.” Vanessa Streeton, CocoonU Founder

Bespoke

Not only do CocoonU produce our own range of finest quality cashmere, but we can produce bespoke items for fashion labels, corporate clients and even individuals.

We can incorporate subtle design cues from your existing products and brands, even including basic images within the pattern. We use knits with high quality yarn in any colour and combinations of gauges for products ranging from scarves, shawls, socks, gloves, pullovers, travel sets, cardigans, jackets and blankets.

Whatever products you wish to give as a corportate gift, CocoonU can make them from an eco-friendly and ethically sourced exceptional material. To date we have been working closely with global luxury brands in sectors as diverse as yachting, fashion, professional sport, interiors, motoring and executive aviation.

Today, buyers start their purchasing experience by looking on the Internet, in search engines, the blogosphere and social media sites.
