SHOKAY, which means yak down in Tibetan, is the world's first socially responsible textiles brand that focuses on developing premium products made from yak down. We both design our own products for our SHOKAY Collection and partner with other brands and designers to use our yak yarn in their own collections.
SHOKAY yak down derives its unique origins from the mountainous Himalayan regions of western China. Our fibers are hand-combed from the yaks that dwell there, and which continue to serve as a life source for their Tibetan herders. From this down comes a soft and beautiful fabric, unlike any other. We source our fibers directly from Tibetan communities in the Qinghai region to ensure the highest quality, traceability, and social impact.
Our vision is ambitious: to revolutionize the yak yarn industry by thoughtfully engaging in each step of the manufacturing process. We care how the fibers are combed from the yak, how the fibers are sorted and cleaned, how they are spun into yarn, and how they are woven or knitted into finished products.
We believe that by investing and reinvesting our success into local communities, we ensure the opportunity of choice for future Tibetan generations.
