Cashmere out, yak hair in

knit rose clutchI love all the flower-embellished accessories right now, even if it’s so ubiquitous that Gap and J Crew are all over it. But so are our favorite indie labels. Take a look at this sweet hand-knit rose clutch from CMP’s beloved site, Shokay. It’s soft and unstructured, made of 75% yak hair which is pretty much Himalayan cashmere. The rest is a bamboo fiber.

It not only looks beautiful, it does beautiful things, like providing a sustainable income to the Tibetan herders and artisans that Shokay sources from. Sounds like a great backstory for a great Mother’s Day gift. -Liz
