‘Colours of Mongolia’ is the new Tretford colour palette, inspired by the indigenous peoples, landscape, culture and rugged environment that nurtures the goats producing this beautiful cashmere carpet.

The nomadic lifestyle of the Mongolian people is particularly captivating, as they subsist off the land and seem to remain relatively untouched by Western influence.  The landscapes themselves are breathtaking, and are in a sense symbolic of the Mongolian tribal and nomadic lifestyles that they live.

Tretford have sourced their goat hair from Mongolian goat herders for over 20 years and have played a vital role in supporting the viability and traditions of these indigenous animals, communities and customs.

All of the Cashmere goat hair used in Tretford carpets is dyed without bleaching, which not only gives the carpets their stunning, naturally rich colours, it eliminates the use of harmful toxins in the dying process.
