Unlike cotton which requires tonnes of water and acres of land to grow, or wool which is shorn from sheep that are farmed for their coats, cashmere is an innately sustainable and renewable resource. The nomadic farmers of Mongolia raise their goats on the green grasslands, moving once the pastures are stripped to allow the land to regenerate. When the spring arrives and the goats no longer need their undercoat for warmth, the cashmere is gently combed from them.
This event launched MISCHA in Bali and offered everyone a unique experience with the brand as well as the designer, Michelle Lai. Michelle has a long-standing commitment to empowering women, expressed through her work with The Women’s Foundation and charities supporting girls education. Michelle was invited to be a speaker at TED X Youth Hong Kong in 2013 and was featured in Star World TV’s Inspiring Women special for International Women’s Day in 2014.
