SUSTAINABILITY OUR DNA
We take the whole concept of sustainability very seriously. In fact, we were probably one of the first cashmere companies to really make it part of our DNA. From the very genesis of the product (the carefully, lovingly gleaned moulted goats’ hair) through to the manufacture of the cashmere, we check every single step along the way. So, when it reaches you, you can be sure you have in your hands a fully sustained product to the best of our ability.
Of course, sustainability is an ongoing challenge. We can't just sit back and say we have done enough. There is never a sustainability end point.
We continually look for new ways to improve our sustainability criteria and challenge ourselves to find it. We have an open sustainability dialogue with everyone involved in the manufacturing process. Harriet Denner (our founder) was a believer.... we make sure we do our level best to maintain that goal.
That is the Denner sustainability DNA.
