What we stand for
We strive for long-term relationships with our farmers, and guarantee them the annual purchase of minimal quantities. For this purpose, we pay the farmers a correct and fair price to support them directly and in the long run in their original way of living.
We actively support a form of extensive animal husbandry that is ecologically sustainable and assures animal welfare. Our financial commitment by means of higher ex-farm prices and a social fund aims at continuous improvements in pasture management, access to veterinary services and animal welfare.
We want to invest where our fibers come from, both financial and personal. Our vision is to process the fibers completely in Kyrgyzstan in order to add as much value as possible on a local level.
We want to create direct links between the animals and farmers in Kyrgyzstan, and our customers. Therefore, our yarns are traceable, traded according to fair principles, and grown and processed in an ecologically and socially sound manner.
We keep moving and keep questioning existing state of affairs. Our transparency enables our customers to form themselves a picture of our actions and likewise to question us critically.
We seek an independent third-party certification - according to criteria of organic animal husbandry and the Global Organic Textile Standard - which covers the entire processing chain from fiber to yarn and meets highest environmental and social standards.
