At Rembo Styling we care about our environment!
Our own dresses are made with love in Portugal in our own factory, but our knitwear is made in South Africa. When we wanted to launch a small knitwear collection, it was key for us that the mohair was sourced in a natural and sustainable way. We got in touch with a super funky lady named Candice, who now produces our knits in local farms in South Africa.
Let us introduce you to the story of your mohair Rembo Styling knitwear!
Mohair is the fleece of the Angora goat, and it’s one of the world’s most beautiful sustainable natural fibers.
We use the finest pure kid mohair produced on sustainable farms with ethical farming practices.
Each style is knitted in local factories and finished by hand in Candice’s studio.
Sourced from the unforgiving and arid landscape of the Karoo, this collection is symbolic of finding beauty and comfort in the world and luxuriously knitting it into a range that showcases the very best of the Karoo, characterized by quality, softness and elegance.
South Africa is the biggest global producer of mohair, producing 50% of the world’s mohair. Most of South Africa’s Angora goats are farmed in the Karoo area of the Eastern Cape.
Angora goats thrive in the Karoo, with its combination of hot, dry summers, cold winters and semi-desert vegetation. In the pursuit of perfection, their fleece has been refined through consistently high breeding standards and meticulous genetic selection. Angora goats are shorn twice a year and are not harmed in any way during the process.
This combination of best practice farming and the best environment for Angora goats sets South Africa apart from other mohair-producing countries and produces one of the finest natural fibres globally.
The added beauty of mohair is that it is a natural, renewable resource, providing a sustainable production chain between animal and human while contributing to the long-term prosperity of the Karoo region.
