Female-founded mid-pandemic in 2020, Crush is a Belgian brand that offers sustainable and ethical cashmere. Crush works directly with herders and the local knitting community in Mongolia to make luxury cashmere knits. Crush maintains a traceable supply chain and partners with the SFA (Sustainable Fibre Alliance) to restore grasslands, protect the animals and support the livelihood of herders. To attain founder Jill Shaw’s desire for color, Crush uses custom dyes that are ISO (International Organization for Standardization) accredited. CRUSH’s ready-to-wear collections choose slow fashion over fast trends to produce cashmere that is kind to both your skin and the planet.
Investing in locally made products benefits both the community and the environment. Locally produced goods decrease pollution caused by transportation, while cutting back on wasteful packaging used in product distribution. Additionally, residents gain an influx of jobs, which enhances their community.
