Barbara Lohmann. Her fashion is an expression of craftsmanship which sees tradition not as a guideline but as a signpost. When Barbara Lohmann is asked to characterise her fashion, she likes to use the comparison of the composition of a perfume. The first impression, the head note, is reflected in the changing designs throughout the collections.
The heart note is the workmanship, the craftsmanship per se. The base note reflects material and quality as consistent components. A timeless, playful and feminine elegance is the trademark of her collections. Barbara Lohmann represents credibility, natural and unpretentious luxury.
Only at the beginning of the last century in France, cashmere was used initially for underwear. In the 20's COCO CHANEL and JEAN PATOU showed the world how such inimitably beautiful cashmere knitwear could be done. Thus, the cashmere knitwear industry began at its highest level. This is how cashmere fibers’ triumph began. Italian spinning mills were especially distinguished for the purity, uniformity and fineness of the fiber they spun. It was the excellent water quality of these regions that made the difference and is still so today.
Why a Cashmere product is so valuable depends on many factors. Apart from selecting the best yarn, a factor which determines the price of cashmere products is also the uniqueness and scarcity of the raw material, because only about 5% of annual fiber production accounts for wool, animal hair and silk. Cashmere goats ship yearly only about 5 500 tonnes worldwide. Just by this you can tell that not everything which is called cashmere is cashmere, because the quantity of cashmere knitwear on the market exceeds the theoretical amount. High-quality conditions determine the value of cashmere yarn: The length of the fiber - The fine undercoat of the cashmere goat is the raw material from which such a cashmere yarn is made.
