by Helen for CocoonU (North Yorkshire)
CocoonU is the brainchild and passion of founder and Managing Director, Vanessa Streeton. The company retails ethical, 100% cashmere clothing, accessories and interiors, via the internet and newly opened boutique in Harrogate.
Outer Mongolia and its' Buddhist democracy were the source of inspiration for CocoonU, together with a passion for the beauty and exceptional warmth of cashmere and the desire to retail items that would last a lifetime.
The nomadic herders in Outer Mongolia and their lifestyle and country bring the finest raw materials to CocoonU. Temperatures of -50 degrees and hand combing from the underbelly of the goat, result in longer cashmere fibres with a fine lustre. The result is exceptional quality yarns which are exquisitely soft, yet strong and durable.
CocoonU never compromise on design, style and presentation. Classic and stylish or contemporary with a modern twist, our collection of 100% cashmere clothing and accessories offers pieces for all seasons and all ages.
CocoonU also offer a stunning interiors collection, comprising woven and knitted throws and coordinating cushion covers in the softest, warmest and most luxurious 100% cashmere. Classic, neutral tones of chocolate and beige complement any home and add a sense of intimacy, indulgence and sheer style.
