Each of our Kit and Ace shops is uniquely local in its design and each shop experience is tailored to its environment. Across all stores you will find gallery inspired spaces that feature the work of local artists, photography that is iconic to each city, as well as custom light fixtures and furniture. We also partner with local vendors for all in-store events, whether that is the brewery around the corner or a restaurant offering the best in local fare. We celebrate creativity and design in each city that we call home. We recognize the local influence and honour it in each of our shop locations.

The Origins of Technical Cashmere™

Follow our cashmere from Mongolia to your closet.

Our products are as much about the production process as they are about style and design. Every step and every partner is carefully considered. We work with amazing people, processes and production methods, so we can guarantee the quality and craftsmanship of Technical Cashmere™.

Take a step-by-step tour of how our cashmere travels from Mongolia to your closet.

Our cashmere is sourced from happy goats living in both Mongolia and Inner Mongolia, China.

To collect cashmere, the goats are combed once a year in April when they are losing their winter hair. Their hair falls out easily in the spring and a wide-tooth wired comb is used to ensure only the cashmere hair is removed, not their regular hair. (We want the goats to be lighter for the summer months, not naked.)

FACT:
Each goat provides approximately two ounces of cashmere, enough to make about half of a sweater – so you can thank at least two goats for giving up their winter coat to keep you warm. (Thank you notes are not included with purchase.)

After the hair is collected from the combs, it is colour sorted, cleaned and then drawn out into raw cashmere. This is where things start to get technical.

The cashmere is now ready to be blended into a yarn with other fibres we specifically source globally including cotton, elastane and nylon. Each of our cashmere yarns is of a different composition determined by the technical function of the piece it will be knit or woven into.

When the precise composition of the yarn is determined, the cashmere is sent to be spun, knit or woven, dyed and finished to create one of the proprietary fabrics of Kit and Ace. Then it’s time for the details.

Our design teams collaborate with our partner factories to engineer each garment and refine its technical details. The materials are then cut and sewn into prototype garments for review and testing. Upon size, fit and quality approval our factory partners then produce full orders. The softest most comfortable fabric is on its way to our shops.

Our Technical Cashmere™ gets into your hands.  After production, t-shirts and apparel are then distributed to our shops across Canada and the United States (soon to be global) and delivered directly to your front door from our studio dot com.
