Fashion Diaries: True Elegance never goes out of Style!

Dear my fashionistas, I hope you are well and ready for a new fashion adventure on the Mr.M blog. Today’s post will be a little different from previous fashion stories because today we have a special guest who decided to share her definition of elegance with us. Many of you have asked me where my mom is and you wished to see her in some new fashion story.

We have a family tradition that my mother and I are in charge of fashion awareness, while my father and sister are our eternal projects for experimentation that are not exactly fashion lovers. My father’s famous sentence quoted by everyone in the family: “Style is obviously a hard and arduous sport as soon as my wife and son don’t come home from morning till night!”.

My mother never had the need to try to find beautiful things, I really don’t know how, but she has a fashionable “sixth sense”. During the purchase, she has a feeling of which store to enter and which she is sure will find the real treasure. She is one of those people you can send to an outlet or to Mars, she will miraculously find an extremely beautiful thing (in my father’s dictionary there is a definition, beautiful = expensive).

She is a woman who has an eye for detail and who notices everything, the best expert who just needs to look at a garment or fashion accessory and you will immediately get a comprehensive and detailed explanation of why you should buy something, or why you should give up and look further…

One of the things I could never learn from my mom is the true definition of elegance. Elegance is reflected in the ease of choosing models, cuts and colors. When you mention the word elegance, people often mean wearing only one-color pieces of clothing and fashion accessories, but reality and theory sometimes differ significantly. Achieving an elegant and refined look requires a little effort and a good choice of colors. It is important to never forget what the real power of simplicity really is.

Some pieces of clothing and fashion accessories are simply timeless iconic classics. Real classics resist the ravages of time and you can always wear them regardless of constant fashion changes. Among these pieces of clothing are certainly quality coats, ballet flats and the famous pearl necklaces. These pieces of clothing and accessories are still as attractive today as they were 20 or 30 years ago, and most importantly, they are always elegant. It is good to have these details in your collection, because they are a sure way to achieve an elegant and refined look in women world.

On the other hand, men also have fashion details that never go out of fashion, such as good suits, coats, jeans and sneakers. Many people think that time will do its thing and that some fashion piece will become obsolete, but believe me, miracles happen!

Never underestimate the power of a good and quality bag, because this fashion accessory completes every fashion outfit. This does not mean that the bag must be strictly branded, but it is important that the model is simple and made of quality materials. What you should always strive for are flat cuts and breathtaking models.

If you want to achieve a refined and elegant look, you must know what suits you well. What exactly does that mean? You simply need to know which colors suit you best, but also which models of coats, skirts and dresses best suit your build. Don’t buy clothes and fashion accessories at any cost just because they are on sale or you will be taken away by the “ultra” attractive cheap price. Sometimes it may be better to pay a little more for a good piece, but it will look good on you and you will be satisfied.

For a good look and achieving the full effect, it is especially important how you will take something, it is a “game” where attitude and self-confidence are very important. Only a person who has an attitude and who is confident in himself can look elegant and refined. An elegant person is what she really is, not what she wears. Don’t let the clothes wear you, the pieces of clothing are there to contribute to your expression of personality.

In today’s post, my mother and I wanted to show you the beauty of cashmere items and fashion details of the fashion house GOBI Cashmere from Mongolia. Coats are timeless classics that never go out of fashion, and regardless of current fashion trends, each of us should have a beautiful red or camel coat, because these are colors that can be easily combined with other colors.

Founded and built by the Mongolian community, the GOBI Cashmere brand combines tradition, modern innovation and technology to make pieces of the highest quality cashmere for almost 40 years. GOBI Cashmere offers the finest and most luxurious pieces made of cashmere. This brand is known around the world for special cashmere coats and is the only company in the world that exclusively produces cashmere clothes with many years of experience and immense love.

Mongolia is known in the world as the “Kingdom of Cashmere” because of the way this precious material is produced and made. The cold Siberian climate has led to the breeding of Mongolian goats in a special way and because of that they have a dense undercoat that contains the longest and thinnest strands of wool in the world.

This “royal fiber” is the softest and highest quality cashmere. What makes the goats of Mongolia even more valuable are the four different natural colors that can be found alone in one area.

In addition to participating in improving the financial balance, cashmere has played a vital role in the professional training of shepherds and enabling them to participate in the business fashion world. GOBI Cashmere is one of the few companies in the world that gives shepherds the opportunity to eliminate intermediaries and thus make direct sales.

To prevent the possible use of cashmere knitwear by the world’s leading brands, they also have the freedom to negotiate directly with customers so that they can have their voice and set the price. Unfortunately, this business opportunity is not available in most rural areas, but GOBI Cashmere is working to improve conditions.

Even the inhabitants of large cities in Mongolia recognized the dedication and work of their nomadic colleagues. For them, it is something more than just a piece of luxury cashmere clothing. Over time, the GOBI Cashmere brand has become a part of the national identity that the Mongols are very proud of. Cashmere has always been synonymous with cloud-like quality and softness. Fibers obtained from cashmere goats are three times better thermal insulators than sheep wool. Wool is combed during the natural process of wool shedding, when goats begin to change their wool and “change” their magical winter coat.

Shepherds with generational knowledge manually comb cashmere fibers to protect goats from overheating and secondary diseases such as ticks. This is the best, most sustainable and most humane way to get cashmere. This way of getting cashmere is almost like a massage. Cashmere is a very delicate material, but with proper care, you can wear your favorite pieces for a long time.

What does the process of traceability GOBI Cashmere mean? The GOBI Cashmere cashmere tracebility process means that every production step will be recorded from start to finish and all processes will be preserved. In order to be able to document the origin of each strand of cashmere fiber, many records need to be made. GOBI Cashmere presents its new project on the possibility of tracking cashmere fibers.

This project will provide an opportunity for all customers to find out where the cashmere from which their garment is made in Mongolia comes from. Because cashmere is indeed a sustainable source of raw materials, each product received a monitoring rating based on several factors. I believe that this revolutionary project will mark a new era in the fashion industry.

I am sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia so you can find all the information on their official social media channels on their Facebook page and official Instagram profile.

Today’s elegant outfit was completed by a watch from the Akylon collection of the art Swiss brand MUSE, which you had the opportunity to meet in one of the previous posts.

The case is made of 100% titanium in the color of rose gold, while the dial is made of aventurine, a type of quartz that is characterized by its transparency and the presence of mineral impurities in the form of platinum that give it a shimmering or shining effect called aventurescence.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze brown-gold color. The bracelet is made of Elaphe water snake skin, which does not belong to the protected species. For all additional information and news about MUSE watches, you can follow them on their official Facebook page and Instagram profile.

MUSE watches are for all art lovers with refined taste and a sense of aesthetics. The basic idea of the founders of the MUSE brand was to re-examine and present the representation of time through an artistic prism. Mr. Robert and Mr. Leuba replaced the traditional hands, so the hours, minutes and seconds are shown in special art forms inspired by elements of nature and architecture.

MUSE dials are a moving art, time passes and different formations and shapes are made. Watches have become real small pieces of art today, only technology and inspiration have made it possible to enjoy the beauty of shapes that change on the MUSE dial every minute.

This spring, some new models also arrived from my friends Picard, who supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard’s leather friends never let me down. The quality and design of Picard accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.

Today, my mom got a chance to see the quality and beautiful design of their most famous Weimar model from the special premium collection Made in Germany. This model is made of the highest quality leather with a crocodile print in a gentle navy blue color.

We really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and we hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!

With love from Berlin,

Fashion Diaries: Beige, a gentle color that will make your day amazing!

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are well and that you have done all the preparations for the weekend! Today we will bust some myths and prejudices about the beige color and I will try to present you some basic characteristics of this wonderful color. Beige is one of the most appreciative colors that is easy to adapt, this color itself is very calm, neutral and easily fits with any color thanks to its “drowning neutrality”.

Beige is a natural color with a visible admixture of brown and white. Many people find this color boring, while some find it very relaxing to the eye due to its neutrality. This color goes perfectly with bright and dark colors because beige is a great “background” color that can combine colors and create true harmony.

People believe that beige is a symbol of conservatism, piety and simplicity. I love this color and for me it is the epitome of sophistication and elegance. Beige color is light and neutral and can simply soften any combination that contains pieces of bright colors, while on the other hand it can successfully extract the best from some dark shades that are not pleasing to the eye.

If you want to emphasize two or more darker shades, it is necessary to add clothing items or fashion accessories in beige color and achieve a relaxing effect. Beige color is easily combined with pink and yellow, and in that way you achieve a gentle, attractive and conservative look. If you decide to combine beige with brown, orange and black, then an ideal palette of earth colors is created and the combination gets a strong and sophisticated look. Combined with blue, beige gives warmth to shades of blue, but never manages to fully compensate for the intensity of cold blue shades.

Beige is a color that suits every person, it’s just a matter of some personal preferences and tastes because some people don’t feel comfortable wearing beige. Today I decided to show you what the harmony of earth colors looks like with beautiful pieces of cashmere made by my friends from the company GOBI Cashmere from Mongolia.

Founded and built by the Mongol community, the GOBI Cashmere brand combines tradition, modern innovation and technology to make pieces of the highest quality cashmere for almost 40 years. GOBI Cashmere offers the finest and most luxurious pieces made of cashmere. This brand is known around the world for special cashmere coats and is the only company in the world that exclusively produces cashmere clothes with many years of experience and great love.

GOBI Cashmere is one of the few brands in the world that has integrated the sustainability program with respect for its tradition and the roots of the nomadic lifestyle. Nature conservation and harmony are the only life values nurtured by nomadic shepherds in Mongolia. Generations of shepherds who lived in the steppes for thousands of years, creating a unique tradition of Mongolian nomads. Gobi Kashmir is a brand that has combined its traditional heritage with modern sustainability initiatives.

A non-profit organization that deals with the protection of the value of cashmere, the “chain of life” from shepherds to retailers. Founded in 2015, the SFA (Sustainability Fiber Association) organization provides an independent, non-competitive platform that allows to protect the rights and values of all participants in the cashmere value chain, as well as non-governmental and governmental organizations, to unite a common interest in ensuring sustainability in industry cashmere.

The main goal of the SFA organization is the safe production, processing and launch of internationally traded cashmere fibers, while respecting the law of sustainability, which results in better environmental protection and economic development for participants in the value chain.

All members of this organization are committed exclusively to three clear goals:

  • Environmental protection – Ecological sustainability in the Mongolian regions where cashmere is produced.
  • Community protection – Improving economic conditions in the long- term for all pastoral communities whose livelihood depends solely on the cashmere market.
  • Animal protection – ensuring the right to life of animals in cashmere production.

GOBI Cashmere, in cooperation with the non-profit organization SFA, supports a special project that covers the topics of cashmere sustainability. This project aims to support the sustainability of cashmere in order to reduce and prevent the deterioration of grazing and wildlife protection conditions in rural parts of Mongolia. Through this comprehensive program that brings together all actors in the cashmere value chain, the project improves the lives of shepherds and the development of a sustainable cashmere industry in the provinces of Dornogobi and Bayankhongor.

I’m sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia, so you can read my previous posts about this brand, brand history – link, GOBI Cashmere traceability program – link. You can also find all the information on their official social media channels on the Facebook page and their official Instagram profile.

This spring, new items also arrived from my friends Picard Lederwaren, who supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard’s leather friends never let me down. The quality and design of Picard leather goods and accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.

The model you have the opportunity to see in today’s blog post is one of the models from the new collection for Spring – Summer 2021 and also it is iconic model Buddy. I must admit that this shape won my heart over at a very first sight. The Buddy backpack in black leather is very elegant and urban so you can wear it on absolutely any occasion.

Picard backpack model Buddy, my new friend from Picard who is keeping me company in Berlin this spring, while we are ready for some new adventures that await us soon.

Today’s elegant outfit was completed by a watch from the Akylon collection of the art Swiss brand MUSE, which you had the opportunity to meet in one of the previous posts.

Gobi Cashmere: Do we know all the Secrets about the Royal Fiber?

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great and ready for a new fashion adventure this Friday. In the previous days, I wondered in which direction my blog was going and whether my content was useful for my readers. I asked a question on Instagram and many of you answered that they learned many tips, tricks and advises on clothing maintenance, skin care and hygiene, which I was extremely glad to hear such answers.

Today, I decided to share with you some of the many facts about cashmere, the royal fiber that the GOBI Cashmere company makes with a lot of dedication and love in the heart of Asia – Mongolia. If you want to remember some details from the previous fashion story about the GOBI Cashmere brand, visit this link.

Did you know that Mongolia is the 19th largest country in the world in terms of area with 21 provinces. Each of them has its own characteristics in terms of natural beauty, which has a great impact on goats, and thus on the quality of cashmere. Based on decades of experience, GOBI Cashmere procures its cashmere directly from the 7 provinces where this royal fiber is the best.

After the goats are combed during the hair change in the spring, this valuable royal fiber GOBI Cashmere brand is bought directly from shepherd families. Direct purchase, without intermediaries, enables more favorable prices for customers, guarantees good quality and ethical responsibility as well.

Since the direct purchase of cashmere affects the lower price of the final GOBI Cashmere products, it is also important to find out how the highest quality cashmere products are made in Mongolia. From “raw cashmere” to the final product on the shelf in the store, there is a long way to go, but the whole process takes place in one place – in the GOBI Cashmere factory in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia.

The process takes place in 16 stages of processing and production. In each of the stages, the greatest attention is paid to details in order to obtain cashmere products that meet all the requirements and needs of customers. GOBI Cashmere strives to combine interesting and modern design with advanced technology and thus create innovative knitwear that can be worn all year round.

What are the 16 processes that take place in the GOBI Cashmere factory so that we can enjoy the softness of the finest cashmere items? I will try to briefly describe the production process.

Conceptual and creative product design development – The design development process refers to all knitted and woven products that need to be sewn. Before making a cashmere garment, it first exists in the imagination of the creative team, after which sketches are drawn. When the technical sketch is ready, the first samples can be made. Depending on the design, special instructions are developed to help program the production system in which the factory sample is made for mass production. After that, the factory sample is subjected to precise testing and adjustment of production. Production of the design begins only when the conceptual and factory sample fit completely. A special code is added to the sample, the production price is calculated and a production time frame is created.

Sorting – At the beginning of the production process, cashmere is sorted. The raw material is delivered directly from the nomads in the steppes to the GOBI Cashmere factory, where each fiber is sorted into 19 categories according to color and origin, and it is important to note that all this is done manually. You can never be too precise and for that reason there is a quality control that assesses the strength and condition of each thread. The sorted goods are then weighed, packed and stored. It is now ready for the next step in the production process.

Rubbing (fiber screening) – At this stage, more happens than just washing and purifying the fibers. Before and after each production process, there is a special quality control, then the fibers come to a large machine, where they go through a special washing procedure depending on their micro-consistency, length and color of the fibers. After washing, the fibers are dried and tested before being sent to the next production step on the production line.

Fiber Combing – Washed and dried raw cashmere is packaged for special fiber combing. Raw cashmere is placed in a large comb with sharp combs. Soft combs are separated from coarser combs. The result of this production process is an airy cashmere that resembles a cloud that is so soft that you just want to touch it and take it home. The obtained fibers are carefully collected and a manual quality check is performed before the next step – dyeing and mixing the fibers. Due to the use of large machines, the whole process is specially monitored for the safety of workers.

Dyeing and bleaching of fibers – In the GOBI Cashmere factory, an average of about 1800 colors are created. They all range from very faint shades to more vibrant, strong colors to cover a wide range of colors. The dyeing and bleaching process begins when the combed cashmere is transferred through a tube into a deep cylindrical basket, from where it is poured into a larger fiber dyeing machine. In accordance with health and safety standards for customers and workers, only approved Swiss-made paints are used. To obtain the desired color, an automatic color recognition system is used so that color differences within the spectrum can be recognized. After dyeing, cashmere is dried by a special method using radio frequencies. Radio wave drying is efficient and practical due to its deep penetration and moisture balance. By heating the fibers from the inside, a hot and dry outer layer is avoided and in that way further processing of cashmere is facilitated.

Fiber mixing – To get the perfect shade and the best fiber blend. During this process, different types of fibers are mixed and also different colors of the same fibers are mixed to obtain the appropriate color. All defects of crude fiber are opened and disassembled according to a special recipe from the company GOBI. They are then coated with finely atomized substances to protect the fibers from cracking in the next phase of the mixing process. This is known as carding. The carding machine is equipped with rows of sharp combs to soften the fibers and comb them into a single layer removing the remaining imperfections and all impurities.

Woolen “Spiders” Patterns (thread making) – The process by which yarn is made for weaving and knitting. The thickness of the yarn must be made of solid threads. Combed raw cashmere is usually stretched after the mixing and carding phase, a process known as wool spinning. The stretching and twisting of the fibers is done by a machine that takes up a lot of air in the yarn, making it very light and elastic. During this procedure, each strand is examined for possible defects and cracks that may occur. Wrapped with a machine on combs, the strands are then ready to be twisted into threads and prepared for the knitting process.

Spinning is a process where the fibers are combed and straightened in parallel. Unlike “wool spinning”, cashmere twisting occurs later in “anchor spinning”. The air is expelled during twisting and the result is a smooth, heavy and even yarn. With each passage through the spinning machine, the fibers become thinner, which enables more precise execution of seams and facilitates the knitting process.

Knitting is a process performed with the help of the Japanese modern knitting machine WHOLEGARMENT. As soon as the design process is completed and the patterns are made, the appropriate yarn is assembled in the knitting factory and the design is coded in the knitting machine. Usually the front and back of garments and sleeves to be sewn. With WHOLEGARMENT machines, knitwear can be made in one piece, which saves a lot of time and work. The collars are still sewn by hand.

Finishing process – Knitwear at this time has not yet taken the shape expected. It is necessary to make the material and fibers softer and smoother. This takes place in a “finishing process” that gives the final product softness and smoothness. The product is measured and then the steps of dipping, rinsing, washing, drying, sorting and shaping are repeated. Then accessories such as buttons, buttons, labels, stickers with size information and brand names are added.

Weaving is another technique used in cashmere processing. The products obtained with this technique are most often scarves, blankets and other fashion accessories. Threads from the spinning mill are sent to weaving, where they are knitted and machine-woven. Quality control ensures that designs meet high standards before products are finally “hand-processed”.

Hand weaving process – After the loom, the product is not finished yet. In the phase of hand weaving, brushing and hemming take place, where scarves and blankets are covered with fringes. The products are then washed, washed and dried until a soft and smooth woven product is obtained.

Final finishing of the fabric – the last phase before the delivery of the product takes place through the process of finishing the fabric. It’s all about the final details of soaking, drying and jogging, weighing, labeling and smoothing before the product is ready and ready for delivery.

Fabric printing process – Printing scarves play a major role in this process. Exciting and colorful designs are coded into machines, which then print wonderful patterns on the fabric. In this process, the quality is also measured and of course checked.

Sewing process – In this process, cashmere coats and jackets are sewn. Tailoring is the most important step, followed by sewing the cuff, collar, edges, lining, cuffs and sleeves, which, as well as hemming, are done individually. After each phase, quality control is performed before the product is labeled and packaged for delivery.

Making embroidery – The finished cashmere product is stabilized during the embroidery process. A transparent stabilizer is placed on top of the garment to ensure that the threads that make up the design remain on the surface. After the machine embroidery procedure, the stabilizer is removed and a beautiful, unique embroidery can be seen.

These are briefly described all 16 manufacturing processes in the company GOBI Cashmere, I believe you have now created a certain image in your head that all the processes go through cashmere from entering the factory as fiber to the final product on store shelves.

Cashmere is much more than a soft and warm material from which quality and luxurious clothes are made every day. It is a depiction of a way of life, a long tradition that has developed from generation to generation. GOBI Cashmere is making efforts to protect Mongolian nomads and their goat herds by introducing the ability to track the cashmere fibers used to make GOBI Cashmere fashion pieces.

This option gives you the assurance that you have become the owner of the softest and finest piece that was made with a lot of love by the experts of the GOBI Cashmere team in Mongolia.

What does the process of traceability GOBI Cashmere mean? The GOBI Cashmere tracebility process means that every production step will be recorded from start to finish and all processes will be preserved. In order to be able to document the origin of each strand of cashmere fiber, many records need to be made. GOBI Cashmere presents its new project on the possibility of tracking cashmere fibers.

This project will provide an opportunity for all customers to find out where the cashmere from which their garment is made in Mongolia comes from. Because cashmere is indeed a sustainable source of raw materials, each product received a monitoring rating based on several factors. In one of the following posts, I believe that this revolutionary project will mark a new era in the fashion industry.

I am sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia so you can find all the information on their official social media channels on their Facebook page and official Instagram profile.

Today’s elegant outfit was completed by a watch from the Akylon collection of the art Swiss brand MUSE, which you had the opportunity to meet in one of the previous posts.

The case is made of 100% titanium in the color of rose gold, while the dial is made of aventurine, a type of quartz that is characterized by its transparency and the presence of mineral impurities in the form of platinum that give it a shimmering or shining effect called aventurescence.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze brown-gold color. The bracelet is made of Elaphe water snake skin, which does not belong to the protected species. For all additional information and news about MUSE watches, you can follow them on their official Facebook page and Instagram profile.

MUSE watches are for all art lovers with refined taste and a sense of aesthetics. The basic idea of the founders of the MUSE brand was to re-examine and present the representation of time through an artistic prism. Mr. Robert and Mr. Leuba replaced the traditional hands, so the hours, minutes and seconds are shown in special art forms inspired by elements of nature and architecture.

MUSE dials are a moving art, time passes and different formations and shapes are made. Watches have become real small pieces of art today, only technology and inspiration have made it possible to enjoy the beauty of shapes that change on the MUSE dial every minute.

The time on all MUSE watches is displayed in an unusual way: The disk closest to the sapphire crystal represents seconds, the middle disk is used to display minutes, while the disk closest to the dial is used to display hours. The largest geometric shapes are always for displaying the change of hours, to the smallest for displaying minutes.

The MUSE brand has artistic limited watches that are classified into 6 special collections: Akylon, Kagura, Stella, Stella-S, Tanoura and Kyrian.

Since the whole outfit was in a certain classic tone, my friends from Mytheresa decided to please me with unusual Christian Louboutin unusual Louis Orlato sneakers with spikes that complemented this outfit in an unusual way.

Of course, burgundy color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe, and these unusual spikes further accentuated this fashion combination.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this second special post where we discovered one incredible knitwear cashmere brand from Mongolia! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great spring outfit in burgundy color?

I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.

Gobi Cashmere: Mongolian World of Cashmere

My dear fashionistas, I hope you are doing great! I am sure that you have done all the preparations for the weekend and that you have organized time for yourself and your family. Spring in Germany is significantly different from spring in the other parts of Europe, which is a bit refreshing. The climate in Berlin is varied, throughout the year, but mostly a colder climate prevails. The springs are windy and with a lot of precipitation, which have all the characteristics of autumn.

Why is it perfect? For me, it is an ideal climate because I am a big fan of knitwear and then I have the opportunity to wear them through several seasons!

Today, I present you a brand from Mongolia that processes “royal fiber” into pieces that warm people around the world. Founded and built by the Mongolian community, the GOBI Cashmere brand combines tradition, modern innovation and technology to make pieces of the highest quality cashmere for almost 40 years.

GOBI Cashmere offers the finest and most luxurious pieces made of cashmere. This brand is known around the world for special cashmere coats and is the only company in the world that exclusively produces cashmere clothes with many years of experience, great love and passion.

One of the most important questions arises: Why is cashmere extremely important for Mongolia?

There is a hidden gem in the interior of Asia, more precisely somewhere between Central and East Asia, which was overshadowed by its larger and wealthier neighbors. This gem is Mongolia – the land of the royal fiber that the world knows by name – Cashmere.

Did you know that Mongolia is a world leader in cashmere production and participates in about 50% of world production on a global market, which indicates the quality of production. Mongolia has slowly but surely become recognizable on the world fashion scene.

The importance of cashmere can best be seen in the rural areas of Mongolia where economic development is encouraged. Cashmere is a source of income and employment for more than a third of the population of this unusual Asian country and a large part of nomadic families that make up 90% of the total household income.

Mongolia’s economy depends on cashmere production due to the cold and dry climate of Mongolia, which is not ideal for the development of agricultural branches. Due to the lack of many resources in the country, cattle became their most valuable asset. For these nomadic families, their survival plays a crucial role, while they maintain and transmit centuries-old traditions. Today, shepherds are increasingly relying on the cashmere industry.

In addition to participating in improving the financial value, cashmere has played a vital role in the professional training of shepherds and enabling them to participate in the business fashion world. GOBI is one of the few companies in the world that gives shepherds the opportunity to eliminate intermediaries and thus make direct sales. To prevent the possible use of cashmere knitwear by the world’s leading brands, they also have the freedom to negotiate directly with customers so that they can have a voice and set a price. Unfortunately, this business opportunity is not available in most rural areas, but GOBI is working to improve conditions.

Even the inhabitants of large cities in Mongolia recognized the dedication and work of their nomadic colleagues. For them, it is something more than just a piece of luxury cashmere clothing. Over time, the GOBI brand has become a part of the national identity that the Mongols are very proud of.

Cashmere has always been synonymous with cloud-like quality and unique softness. Fibers obtained from cashmere goats are three times better thermal insulators than sheep wool. Wool is combed during the natural process of wool shedding, when goats begin to change their wool and “lose” their winter fur coat.

Shepherds with generational knowledge manually comb cashmere fibers to protect goats from overheating and secondary diseases such as ticks. This is the best, most sustainable and most humane way to get cashmere. This way of getting cashmere is almost like a massage. Cashmere is a very delicate material, but with proper care, you can wear your favorite cashmere items for a long time.

The Mongols take cashmere for granted because it is one of the most valuable materials that is part of their tradition. Almost every Mongol can get it at a reasonable price and enjoy the quality and characteristics of this material. At the same time, high-quality cashmere is still one of the most luxurious fibers that can be found around the world, including countries like Mongolia that produce more than is needed.

Cashmere is much more than a soft and warm material from which quality and luxurious knitwear items are made every day. It is a depiction of a way of life, a long tradition that has developed from generation to generation. GOBI is making efforts to protect Mongolian nomads and their goat herds by introducing the ability to get know more information about the cashmere fibers used to make GOBI fashion pieces.

This option gives you the assurance that you have become the owner of the softest and finest piece that was made with a lot of love by the experts of the GOBI team in Mongolia.

What does the process of traceability GOBI cashmere mean? The GOBI cashmere tracebility process means that every production step will be recorded from start to finish and all processes will be preserved. In order to be able to document the origin of each strand of cashmere fiber, many records need to be made. GOBI presents its new project on the possibility of tracking cashmere fibers.

This project will provide an opportunity for all customers to find out where the cashmere from which their garment is made in Mongolia comes from. Because cashmere is indeed a sustainable source of raw materials, each product received a monitoring rating based on several factors. In one of the following posts, I will explain the goal of this project in more detail and I believe that this revolutionary project will mark a new era in the fashion industry.

I am sure you are interested in learning more about this unusual and traditional brand from Mongolia so you can find all the information on their official social media channels on their Facebook page and official Instagram profile.

Today’s pure elegance outfit was complemented by a watch from the Schroeder 1877 collection “Gentlemen Renaissance” model Broker with a rose gold case and an iconic brown crocodile bracelet.

This watch was created from a scratch that was researched and developed over the years by engineer Fred-Eric Bolzli. The watch shows local times in the cities where Schroeder Joailliers jewelry products are represented: Luxembourg, Moscow, Dubai, Shanghai, Tokyo and New York.

Even this time I had no dilemma which watch I would put on my hand because the Schroeder The Broker watch was made as an ideal combination of the inevitable rose gold color case with a bracelet of an iconic and timeless dark brown color.

For all those who did not follow my previous fashion adventures, this watch is a novelty, so I suggest you read the Schroeder story and get acquainted with this unusual brand from Luxembourg, I am sure you will like their incredible story. You can follow Maison Schroeder on the social networks Facebook and Instagram.

This spring, new items also arrived from my friends Picard Lederwaren, who supported my adventures around the world for years, and Picard’s leather friends never let me down. The quality and design of Picard leather goods and accessories is amazing and after so many years and carrying pounds of luggage I carry my Picard backpacks in blog posts as well.

The model you had the opportunity to see in the previous blog post and today’s is one of the models from the latest collection for Spring – Summer 2021, and I must admit that this shape won my heart over at a very first sight. The Infinity backpack is very elegant and urban so you can wear it on absolutely any occasion.

OUTFIT

Coat: GOBI

Watch: Schroeder Joailliers 1877

Trousers: GOBI

I used these sunny spring days in Berlin to take for walk my new Jacob Cohen sneakers made of pony hair, which I was a little indifferent to at first because I was afraid that pony hair would fit in with my spring style.

Of course, the brown color goes great with my pastel colors in the wardrobe, and the pony hair further accentuated the elegant note of this elegant – casual outfit.

My dear fashionistas, we have reached the end of this special post where we discovered one incredible knitwear cashmere brand from Mongolia! How did you like my outfit today? Have you found some inspiration for some of yours great spring outfit?

I really tried to prepare today’s post with a lot of love and I hope you will like it! See you in a couple of days with some new interesting story!

I advise you from the bottom of my heart to listen to my advice due to the current unfavorable health situation in almost all European and countries around the world. If you need to go out into the fresh air, take a walk and clear your mind, feel free to do so, but do not go to places where there are a lot of people and encourage crowding.

The process of vaccinating the population in Germany has begun and I believe that the situation will soon improve and that our lives will return to normal soon!

I understand that people need to go out into the fresh air for physical activity and mental health, but you can do that by simple walking the city every day, on low-traffic pedestrian streets. Of course, you can walk in parks and other types of green areas or promenades along rivers, but keep the prescribed physical distance, use disinfectants and please wear a mask.

If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media channels, which you can find on the CONTACT ME page. Stay tuned!

With love from Berlin,
Mr.M
