Sustainable knitwear manufacturer Tengri has used eco-friendly dyeing process to produce hopsack weave fabric exclusively for Huntsman. This extremely limited-edition cloth is woven from Khangai Noble yarns that are superior to those of any other yak fabric. The cloth is available in its undyed silver and natural colouring, as well as a bright new navy blue.

The hopsack weave fabric has been woven by Yorkshire-based R Gledhill Ltd, well-known for spinning fine woolen yarns for more than 70 years.

"We are honoured to be working with one of the finest and long-standing tailors on Savile Row, an establishment which also happens to be the most innovative. It’s innovation that drives Tengri to push the boundaries of sustainable fashion and luxury goods, and our collaboration with Huntsman further realises that luxury and sustainability do not have to be mutually exclusive. The exclusive new cloth celebrates our shared dedication to rich heritage, integrity, craftsmanship and style," said Nancy Johnston, founder of Tengri.

Huntsman will offer clients the chance to own bespoke pieces, made in this new Tengri cloth. These Khangai Noble yarns can be combed only once a year when the animals shed their winter coats. Only 100g of fibre available from each yak, every year.

"At Huntsman, we have offered the ultimate in luxury tailoring for 167 years. We are dedicated to sourcing limited-edition luxury cloths, the very best available in the world at any time. To be working with Tengri and to discover this very unique fabric is truly special. The fibres of the Khangai yak, indigenous to this very specific region of Mongolia, transcend yak yarns and cloths currently available in the luxury market. With Tengri we are able to offer some very precious rare colours, and key for Huntsman, finding exquisite fabrics that stand up to the stresses and tests of time. A Huntsman garment should be able to endure for generations! We are also very proud to be offering a truly sustainable option to our clients, there are not many luxuries in the world you can buy that help people, wildlife, and natural habitats. We fully support and embrace Tengri’s philosophy–'Noble Yarns, Noble Ways'," said Pierre Lagrange, Huntsman owner. (RR)
