Created by expertly skilled master craftsmen, using similar techniques to those used when hand-felting fabric for Mongolian yurts, these sculpted garments are made in felt. Inspired by traditional Han dynasty clothing, this collection reflects the traditional elegance of Chinese style.
Each garment is unique and sculpted into a seamless shape to create a 3-dimensional garment in felt of Mongolian cashmere. Wrapped in style, one will surely remain warm in winter.
Felt was invented by herdersin the earliest antiquity. Working with traditional craftsmen, SHANG XIA has taken the felting process used for Mongolian yurts and adapted it to create warm coats and accessories in cashmere felt. Precious, high quality Mongolian cashmere is rubbed, teased and formed in a creative process more like sculpture than traditional tailoring. The Sculpture collection does not have a single seam or hem; is created without a single needle or thread; it is pure, dense cashmere.
