I was just a child the first time I ran my fingers over my mother’s navy blue cashmere sweater. I vividly remember being captivated by how soft and light it felt. Little did I know then that this exquisite touch would become a lifelong passion...

I strongly believe that passion and enthusiasm are paramount in succeeding in whatever you do. A love of silk and cashmere was just the beginning. Our driving force was creating an accessible and unique global brand that was fueled by the world’s most beautiful, rare, and natural fibres. With dedication, this dream flourished into reality. It gives me great joy that our journey has become a case study within the academic world and is often referred to as an “Actualized Dream”.

My greatest fortune lies in the exceptional team that has poured their hearts, efforts, and time into this project alongside me. Inspired by the resilience and grace of Capra Hircus, our brand's namesake, we navigate challenges with unwavering courage and determination, embodying the spirit of the resilient goat that has shaped our journey.

To this day, from New York to Zurich, Istanbul to London, whenever I see someone wearing cashmere, I curiously wonder whether it’s our product or not. And when our Capra emblem smiles back at me- well that feeling is priceless… Like I said in my novel "The Cashmere Road," I wholeheartedly wouldn’t ever call our beautiful brand “work.” I never could.

Warm Regards,
