Shokay is luxury with a story - one that draws on humanity and inspires purpose in the world of contemporary Fashion. Shokay uses Yak and yak blends to design a unique collection of mostly handknitted products. It’s a little known fact, but Yak undercoates actually rival cashmere, Alpaca and Vicuna for softness. Shokay Yak down derives it’s unique origins from the mountainous Himilayan regions of Western China. Each Yak produces about 100g of this fine downy fiber per year. Tibetan herders hand-comb the yak down from the underbelly of the animals.From this down comes a soft and beautiful fabric, unlike any Other.This enables the herders to earn a sustainable living, while preserving their traditional lifestyle. Shokay presently works with close to 1,000 families from the Qinghai province. The company has also set up a women’s cooperative with knitters in Chongming, who hand knit most of the knitwear and thus craft products with a truly personal touch. Shokay converts these unique properties of Yak fiber into high quality knitwear and fashion accessories.Shokay strives to bring a fresh and stylish fabric to the Fashion World in a socially conscious manner.
