RWS was announced in early 2016 to provide standards for animal welfare and land preservation in the shepherd industry.Providing full traceability, the standard is designed to provide the industry with a tool to recognize the best practices of farmers. Therefore ensuring that wool come from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly.The full transparency of this supply chain can then help to improve communication and understanding between end consumers and brands.
Upholding the promise to perfect our products to more sustainable options, the RWS program was launched FW2020 collection. Adapting RWS certification is not only an important affirmation of UPW's long-term development, but also assuring the greener further by contributing to our sustainable core belief.

How does RWS work?

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

YAK

TEMPERATURES
Yaks are majestic animals that live in the highest plateau in the world, in the Himalayan regions. Yak fibre is 30% warmer than wool and 1.6 times more breathable than cashmere. The average fineness of yak is 18-20 microns with a length of 30-40mm. Unlike wool, the scales of yak fibre are arranged in a mosaic pattern, resulting in a smooth texture. Yaks have two types of hair: coarse hair that is used to make tents and fine down hair used to make clothing. Each yak every year provides just 100g of the fine downy fibre.
Shokay sources ourv yak fiber directly from Tibetan herders, enabling them to earn a sustainable living while preserving their traditional lifestyle. We currently work with thousands of households in Western China. In 2015, Shokay encouraged the villagers to formally set up a cooperative in order to better set standards across the villages. Together we are advocates of education, empowerment, and environmental consciousness.
