First time we heard about NAADAM brand was in instagram advertisement. It said that NAADAM sells the fairest cashmere in the world. So, we decided to check this brand and to find out is it true. Let’s see what we found.
THINGS TO CLAP OUR HANDS ABOUT
NAADAM use biodegradable dyes for their clothes. That means that toxic dyes were not used to dye their cashmere.
All water used in dyeing process is filtered. This technique let's reuse water again and again in the same process. AND as we know, waste of water in the fashion industry is a huge problem.
NAADAM says that Mongolian cashmere is one of the best in the world and their herders use the oldest technique to collect wool. This technique protect goats. They do not feel pain or stress in this process.
This brand does a lot of non - profit work. They care about people that they work with, animals that gives them material to work with AND the planet they live in.

THINGS TO CONSIDER
NAADAM is very open from where their material is, how it is produced, what kind of techniques they use. BUT we are not sure in which country their end product is made. We found information that all manufacturers are checked by third parties. This brand has Beijing based team that takes care of factories. So, does it mean that they have factories in China? That is not clear...BUT it should be
We can read about amazing non-profit work that this brand do. BUT we think it would be very interesting to know more about it. For example, where is NAADAM PARK that they have built.

These two we liked the most:
+ To make one medium size sweater you need wool of four adult goats. We think that is A LOT! 4 naked goats to keep one human warm and cozy.
+ You think that you can clean cashmere only in dry cleaners? WRONG. Answer is baby shampoo! Cashmere clothes can be cleaned with baby shampoo in your home. Amazing tip, right?
If you love those super cozy, soft cashmere clothes this brand is for you to check! NAADAM truly excels at making cashmere more sustainable while keeping friendly price for customers. BUT there is a place for more transparency in their work. When we are talking about factories and where they are.
