The reason why
Here is the secret formula for a winter plaid that will accompany you for a long time: take a workshop founded in 1797 (with exceptional know-how), add 1kg of wool & cashmere, sprinkle with a slightly modernized traditional tartan pattern. And you get a high-fashion cocooning piece!
1 of the 3 best cashmere in the world
At Atelier Particulier, materials is a serious matter. We are constantly on the lookout for the finest materials. This is why we carefully choose our partners. We surround ourselves with the best spinners and weavers.
This time, our quest took us to Scotland, on the road to exceptional cashmere. Our workshop has been making its pieces for over 200 years from the best possible cashmere.
1797, date of creation of our workshop
In the 18th century, Scotland and England already enjoyed a good reputation in the textile world in Europe. Our workshop, founded in 1797, is one of them.
This small Scottish factory - the second oldest in the country - is also the most respected today. Why ? Because it has specialized for a very long time in quality "exotic" fibers, in particular cashmere.
A Scottish Tartan motif revisited by AP
If we say "Scotland", will you answer us? Tweed, of course! Not many people know it but it was in Elgin, where our workshop is located, that the majority of Scottish Tweeds were created.
In 1853, for example, our workshop made the "Balmoral Tartan" tweed for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. This story has greatly inspired us. We capitalized on this tradition to make this collection and reinterpret the tartan pattern. The result lives up to the reputation of this workshop: magnificent!
A quality cashmere, and committed
Our workshop makes its pieces with the best cashmere (Grade A), from sustainable farms in Mongolia. In partnership with the Substainable Fiber Alliance, it supports and preserves the most sustainable, ethical and qualitative cashmere production techniques.
In a globalized world where you always want more quality, durability and transparency, we are very proud to offer you the flagship of cashmere (= less than 5% of total cashmere production).
When cashmere meets merino
While cashmere is soft and warm, it has the disadvantage of being less breathable than merino wool. When the piece is thick (and it is the case here), the material can become suffocating, especially when there are variations in temperature.
By adding merino wool, this allowed us to give more breathability and better thermoregulation to the material, while retaining the great softness and warmth of cashmere!
