TESMA CASHMERE was founded in 1990 by the great experience of Edoardo Mariotti Edoardo Mariotti who has always worked in the textile sector, in particular dealing with the recycling of natural fibers. Ours is in fact a company that processes textile raw materials, focused above all on the production of recycled cashmere.
The company reality

Ours is a circular economy based on the 4R rule: Reduction, Reuse, Recycling and Recovery. This is why at the heart of TESMA CASHMERE's business ethics is respect for the environment.
Some numbers from TESMA
kg of used shirts purchased every year
kg of fiber produced every year
kg of CO2 saved every year
TESMA CASHMERE buys bales of used cashmere meshes from all over the world with the aim of placing them back into the production process, without the need to resort to a new dye, thus avoiding unnecessary consumption of water, use of chemicals and intensive exploitation of pastures.
After a careful selection, division by color and cleanliness, the meshes are brought back to being fiber through the use of special carding that preserve the softness and quality. The purpose of the process is to "go back" that is to generate textile fiber again, ready to be transformed into yarn, fabric and finally into clothing.
