Sustainable cashmere stars in Teixidors’ new home collection

With the aim of giving greater visibility to a unique breeding project that produces sustainable cashmere fibres, Teixidors is opting for the softness and lightness of this material this season, sourced from a cooperative in Mongolia

Teixidors wants to convey a clear and powerful message this autumn-winter: its commitment to handweaving cashmere on its looms in Barcelona is a declaration of intentions. In addition to its qualities of softness, warmth and possibilities when woven by hand, is its ability to symbolize the concept of fragility, which the firm has wanted to convey this season.

It's an idea that is indisputably linked to the current situation, derived from the pandemic, but also to an underlying problem: the delicacy of a vulnerable ecosystem that depends on the responsibility of our own actions. Teixidors believes that it cannot be oblivious to this reality, and therefore their products exemplify this necessary commitment to be shared by us all.

The choice of cashmere for its new home collection strengthens Teixidors’ relationship with a sustainable project that originates from a cooperative in Mongolia. The company presents three models of throws that mix cashmere with a low percentage of yak wool that is also complemented with Merino wool, all from sustainable sources.

YAMAAT is a very light throw, woven with a particularly fine thread, with results similar to those of one of Teixidors’ star collection, JAZZ. Yamaat has a loose weave and a natural grey colour that is obtained by mixing cashmere with a little yak wool. The colour is light grey with a delicate off-white border. Measurements: 140 x 180 cm (55” x 71”). Handwoven in Barcelona.

TUIN is a very special throw where the idea of fragility becomes even more evident. In this cashmere collection, Teixidors incorporates a relatively classic and visibly open structure, commonly associated with linen and cotton fabrics. The final result of the TUIN throw is reminiscent of a lattice or grid-pattern, where the spaces and gaps are the protagonists. When you look at it closely, you can appreciate the supposed fragility of the threads and its special cross over weave. With a spectacular feel, only natural tones have been selected. Measurements: 140 x 180 cm (55” x 71”). Handwoven in Barcelona.

NÉBULA GRIS is a voluminous and interesting piece in terms of its structure and design. It is a new version of the Nébula throw, a classic from the Teixidors’ catalogue. The contribution of the new Nebula Gris is a higher quality yarn made in Teixidors’ home town of Terrassa (Barcelona), which is the result of a research and development project with local suppliers. This is yet another step that demonstrates Teixidors’ commitment to proximity in its production processes. Colour: Light grey. Measurements: 140 x 180 cm (55” x 71”). Handwoven in Barcelona.

TEIXIDORS: a project with the singularity as philosphy

Teixidors sources the highest quality raw materials, like cashmere and Yak wool from a cooperative in Mongolia, and ecological Merino wool from a small farm in Provence. Today Teixidors’ exquisite plaids, bedspreads, pillows and scarves can be found in some of the most prestigious stores in the world.
