Cashmere World is primed for a big and successful Hong Kong debut with many of the world’s most important cashmere producers and luxury brands invested in the exhibition.

This highly specialised fashion fair will run alongside Fashion Access, the best source of “head-to-toe” fashion, from 27 to 29 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Eagerly awaiting their foray into the global market are representatives from the top five cashmere bases in China, namely: Qinghai, Qinghe, Zhejiang, Ningxia, and Inner Mongolia. They will be bringing their latest yarns and fabrics for presentation to the major international buying offices and high-level brands with important regional headquarters in Hong Kong.

Some of China’s leading cashmere brands have already confirmed their participation at Cashmere World. Zhejiang’s Springair Cashmere, the largest sweater manufacturer and supplier in East China will be there. More stylish cashmere sweaters will also be presented by Viction, which produces its top-quality collections in Linhe, Inner Mongolia, and by Taixing Cashmere which is based in Hebei.

They are joined by the Hebei Yulian Cashmere Group, a major supplier of dehaired cashmere and cashmere yarn, as well as cashmere garments. Pipigou, the luxury cashmere apparel brand from Shanghai, is one to watch out for. St. Edenweiss Cashmere of Ningxia will be presenting their collection of scarves.

Other international cashmere centers are represented at the fair including India’s Ahujasons, which preserves and promotes the pashmina shawl-making craft in Kashmir and Punjab. Old Village Overseas is a major Indian producer and exporter of silk and cashmere scarves and fashion accessories, servicing over 200 brands worldwide. Also at the show is Pashma, one of India’s luxury cashmere labels.

Tricot is the largest knitting unit in Nepal, catering to some of the best global fashion brands. From Afghanistan, the Herati Cashmere and Skin Processing Plant is the first cashmere dehairing facility in the country, realising a shift from exporting cashmere in its raw state to the higher-value processed cashmere.

Cashmere from Italy is represented by Galassia, known for its Pashmere brand of sweater made of extra-light cashmere. Chianti Cashmere brings its handcrafted creations using sustainable cashmere. Another Italian company to watch out for is Myak which offers a collection of textiles made from pure baby yak wool, sourced from Tibet.

These eminent names in cashmere are enthusiastic about Hong Kong bringing a fresh and bigger audience for their raw materials and finished fashion products. It is expected that 80% of Cashmere World will consist of garments and accessories exhibitors while 20% will feature yarns and fabrics.

An interesting highlight of Cashmere World will be the roundtable discussion on current cashmere industry developments and issues. The panel will include the eminent Dr. Riaz Ahmad Shah, member of the Bio Technology Department of the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences & Animal Husbandry, Shuhama in the Kashmiri region, who will give an update on his successful cloning of a Pashmina goat kid which he christened “Noori”.
