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.

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

MUSE: New Artistic Era of watches…

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? This spring was spent in cheerful and interesting fashion stories. I would like to thank you for the wonderful messages of support and suggestions for the Mr.M blog that you send me every day. In the previous months, I wrote to you about some new brands of watches that have beautified my outfits and some of them have found their way to your hearts, and I am glad that my recommendations have helped you find your ideal friends with whom you spend time.

A watch is more than just an instrument used to measure time. With the development and modernization of the watch industry, watches have become real small pieces of art that adorn our hand on all occasions. We wear the watch when we go to work, when we go for an casual city walk, but also on those formal occasions when we reach for a little more elegant pieces that would complete our outfit.

The watch is sometimes an ideal gift for people who are dear to you because a watch is a special gift and is given from the heart. Watches are like people, with different characteristics and temperaments, and every watch finds its owner, it is a thin thread of connection that is felt the moment you open the box and see your watch. When someone gives you a watch, believe that you mean a lot to that person and that you have a special place in their heart.

Today I present to you a Swiss brand of art watches that has moved all limits and presented a new modern era of timekeeping – MUSE. When you read the brand name, you understand the importance of art and inspiration, which are just one of the basis of this unusual young Swiss watch brand.

This young brand was founded in 2016, in response to today’s fast-paced lifestyle, allowing art lovers to slow down and enjoy the moments that mean something to them. Is it possible to stop time?

Science has not proven that yet, but the MUSE brand achieves this with a slow-motion display of time, enabled on luxuriously made watch models from special 6 collections.

The duo behind this Swiss watch brand is made up of two industry experts and big watch lovers Pascal Robert and Frédéric Leuba. What brought the two watch engineers together with decades of experience is the love for watches and the vision of merging the classical watch tradition and the elements of contemporary art.

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. As I said at the very beginning of today’s post, 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. In the following post, I will tell you the details of each collection that are specific to the MUSE models.

All MUSE watches are available in two sizes: 37 and 44 mm. The hexagonal shape of the MUSE watch case is very common and their watches are made of titanium. Titanium, as a material, is not only extremely light, but also very useful due to its resistance to corrosion and scratches. In addition, titanium is considered hypoallergenic, which is an ideal material for all those fans of watches who are looking for nickel-free watches that cause allergic reactions.

If you are looking for a watch for everyday use with great artistic value, MUSE watches are the ideal choice for you.

The watch I chose to be my partner in the new adventures is the Akylon GT. The watch 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 radiant effect called aventurescence.

My watch is adorned with an Elaphe bracelet in a bronze-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 account.

The jacket you have the opportunity to see today is from the new Brunello Cucinelli SS21 collection, a classic iconic timeless model of a suede Safari model jacket made of suede leather with 4 pockets. You can always find this model of jacket in the offer of the Italian fashion house Brunello Cucinelli, only the colors always change depending on the season. Like all products of this renowned fashion house, this piece is made of the highest quality materials, in this case of the finest suede leather which is extremely light and due to its color easily fits with almost all related colors that you can wear during spring, summer and autumn. current drape and beige tones.

Jeans are also part of the new Brunello Cucinelli collection for spring – summer and I can tell you right away that these jeans have become my favorite piece in the wardrobe this season. I’m sure you’ll see them more often this summer on my blog!

Today I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to another new brand on the Mr.M blog that comes to us from Sweden. Stenströms is an internationally known Swedish fashion brand for its exceptional quality. Using only the best fabrics, the Stenströms company makes classic and modern clothes. A perfect blend of tradition and elegance with the constant development of manufacturing technology based on 120 years of sustainable craftsmanship.

This short-sleeved T-shirt made of the highest quality merino wool has a classic polo collar and a V-neck. This unusual, neutral brown color, someone will say the color taupe is ideal for all occasions and is easily matched with other colors of similar tones. This shirt is made in knitted ribs in the cuffs and on the hem.

I decided to show you how you can wear this t-shirt on everyday casual occasions that do not require a strictly formal way of dressing, but if you want to achieve a more elegant classic look, you can wear this t-shirt on classic tailored pants.

This spring, novelties 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.

Today I present to you the Infinity model, my new friend from the new Picard collection who is keeping me company in Berlin this spring, while we are ready to look forward to the new travel adventures that await us.
