A story of two cultures blends beautifully together to create sustainable ‘slow fashion.’
Born of Nomad is a “slow fashion” brand. Founded in 2018, the label produces timeless and sustainable clothing for those who value high-end natural materials, such as luxurious cashmere and sturdy yak wool, and who support the sustainable back-to-nature movement and the traditional nomadic lifestyle.Their first BE NOMAD collection is made for those who do not want to sacrifice on design worthy of such noble fabrics and their heritage.
The founder of the startup company, Ray Bat, developed an ethical, luxurious cashmere label that is based on the merging of two cultures close to her heart: the traditional, simple and close-to-nature lifestyle of the nomadic people of the Mongolian Steppe, combined with the Swiss’ sense for meticulous, high-quality design and manufacturing. Born of Nomad is the story of the nomadic people who have lived their entire lives in perfect harmony with nature – generating cruelty free cashmere and yak wool.
The mission of the company is to create a new channel for sourcing cashmere and yak wool that is traceable to each and every nomadic family that provided the raw material. This way they intend to better serve in protecting and promoting the cultural heritage and nomadic herding tradition on the Mongolian Steppe.
Through its storytelling, Born of Nomad calls people to a conscious lifestyle and to appreciate high-quality, mindfully created products. The brand highlights the fact that the harshest climatic conditions are needed, with temperatures below -40 C and bone-chilling winds, for the hircus goats to grow the finest wool worthy of being called – The World’s Best Cashmere.
Extensive research by the founders allows them to form a network of select Mongolian manufacturers who transform and produce high-end fabrics out of the selected fibers. As a result, they achieve a production of the finest knitwear available worldwide.
In order to start production of the BE NOMAD collection, the young fashion label started a Kickstarter campaign with the aim of raising capital by July 15th.
