Afghanistans goat farmers find luxury niche in cashmere

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies It’s changed life for goat herders like Mohammad Amin. He has 120 goats grazing the open spaces around an industrial park on the outskirts of the western city of Herat. At this time of year, most of the female goats have kids and shed the cashmere, which Amin pulls off in huge handfuls.With an extended family of 13, he has a guaranteed income from the best of the cashmere he harvests as traders, processors, donors and international businesses are cottoning on to Afghanistan’s potential as a major producer.“Buyers come to us and buy the good quality cashmere, the rest we take to the market and sell,” Amin said.Each animal yields up to 250 grams (8.8 ounces) of cashmere, Amin said. Each season he can earn more than 61,250 afghanis ($1,100) — not bad in a country where the annual national average is less than $700.Only about 30-40 percent of Afghanistan’s 7 million goats are combed for cashmere, according to estimates by the World Bank and the U.S. Agency for International Development, even though up to 95 percent of the animals could become part of the production chain. Most of the raw product is bought by traders who sell it to Chinese middlemen to feed the mills that produce affordable clothing for much of the world. Parents, stop beating yourself up Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology In this Wednesday, April 15, 2015 photo, Afghan female laborers work at a traditional cashmere factory in Herat city, west of the capital Kabul, Afghanistan. Not so long ago, Afghan farmers collected the thick winter undercoat their goats shed every spring and threw it on the fire to heat their homes and cook their food. Some have since learned that the super-soft fluff that comes off in clumps as the weather warms up, once cleaned, refined and spun into yarn is cashmere – a luxury product that finds customers as far away as the United States, Britain and Europe. (AP Photo/Massoud Hossaini) To that end, a small spinning operation in Kabul called Qaria — meaning “village” in Dari — has just taken Afghanistan a step higher on the ladder to high fashion with a successful three-month pilot program spinning the Herat cashmere into yarn and dying it using plant-based colorants sourced locally, such as saffron and indigo.Briton James Blewett, a partner in Qaria, says they have orders for the yarn from America, Britain and Europe, where it is gaining popularity in knitting shops. Qaria yarn sold out within hours at a recent wool trade fair in Britain, he said.Blewett said the company’s first hand-knitted garments could be on sale later this year, carrying with them hopes of cashmere excellence — a label bearing a stylized goat’s head, with the words “Afghan Made.”___Follow Lynne O’Donnell on Twitter at © The Associated Press.

Sponsored Stories Afghanistan is the world’s third biggest producer of cashmere, its 1,000 metric tons (1,100 U.S. tons) a year, worth $30 million, accounting for 7 percent of the global market — though it lags far behind China’s 70 percent and Mongolia’s 15 percent.The government, recognizing potential, recently came up with a “cashmere action plan,” aiming to target the highest end of the global luxury market — where a designer-label cashmere sweater can cost $1,000.But it’s a long haul. Afghanistan remains a country in conflict after almost 40 years of war and few foreign investors are prepared to face such an insecure and uncertain environment, even if it’s to exploit world-class oil and mineral resources, or agricultural products such as pomegranates, saffron and cashmere.Afghanistan’s biggest cash crop is opium, produced by farmers terrorized by the Taliban who are the major beneficiaries of the illicit, $3 billion-a-year industry. Government efforts to persuade farmers to grow food crops have largely failed because drug lords offer more money for growing poppy flowers and those who don’t comply incur the wrath of the Taliban. Top Stories HERAT, Afghanistan (AP) — Not so long ago, Afghan farmers collected the thick winter undercoat their goats shed every spring and threw it on the fire to heat their homes and cook their food. Some have since learned that the super-soft fluff that comes off in clumps as the weather warms up, once cleaned, refined and spun into yarn is cashmere — a luxury product that finds customers as far away as the United States, Britain and Europe. 5 greatest Kentucky Derby finishes Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement 0 Comments   Share   Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober But the mountains of the north and the west are far from Afghanistan’s opium fields, and the goats in Herat have so far not stirred insurgents’ interest. While Afghan goat herders are among the poorest in the impoverished country, the precious fiber could transform their existence.Until recently, Afghanistan’s lack of processing capacity forced its cashmere goat herders to depend on the less discerning Chinese market. Unwashed cashmere can carry serious health risks, including anthrax spores, which has kept the Afghan product out of America and Europe.It took years after the 2001 U.S. invasion, which ousted the Taliban, for foreign businesses to start arriving — investors willing to bring money and expertise to develop a profitable, niche market. Long-term, it could be a self-sustaining industry in Afghanistan, one that will create jobs — including work for women, generally marginalized in this society — from farm to factory, and eventually beyond, to fashion.Brian Ross, fund manager with the Afghanistan Business Innovation Fund, financed by the British government’s Department for International Development, is optimistic. He is working with the British company Cashmere Fibers International in a joint venture with Belgian investor Traitex. Together, they have a cashmere processing plant in Herat, one of only two in Afghanistan creating a product of European standard. “On the lower end of the value chain, there is a lot of cashmere” which, once processed, “can be sold to the high-end luxury textile manufacturers,” he said. “So absolutely, there is a strong potential for growth in the Afghan sector.”Cashmere is not a wool but a hair, which accounts for its unique characteristics compared to sheep’s wool — soft and fine in texture, light and strong at the same time. In the near-sterile conditions at Herat’s CFI-Traitex plant, the filthy, matted raw goat coat is washed and the long hair is separated from the cashmere. The cashmere is repeatedly refined, becoming increasingly gossamer-like as it is transformed into the highest quality, pristine, aerated fluff. It is then baled and sent to Europe, ready to be spun into the finest yarn that can be dyed and knitted or woven into fabric, carpets and clothing.No matter how much export-quality cashmere the plant turns out, it is guaranteed to be sold, said Sayed Ahmad Jami, project manager.The Afghan Ministry of Commerce and Industry says the global market value for cashmere is over $1 billion. As China is known to blend different qualities of cashmere to achieve volume, the ministry believes the top end of the market is wide open for the unadulterated Afghan product.last_img read more

Year after introducing charge plastic bag use drops 80 per cent

first_imgOne year after the handing out of free plastic bags in shops was banned the use of them has dropped by 80 per cent, the department of the environment announced on Monday.A complete ban on plastic carrier bags might be the next step, environment officer at the department Elena Christodoulidou said.On July 1, 2018 the regulations for reducing the use of the bags were adopted, which had been approved by the House in 2017.Supermarkets and other points of sale have charged up to six cents for the bags since then.“The implementation of this measure saw a significant reduction in the use of thin plastic carrier bags as the public readily accepted this measure and responded positively. There has been a reduction in use of about 80 per cent compared to before the implementation,” Christodoulidou said.Future measures include reducing the impact of other harmful plastic products, such as straws, food containers and cotton buds in line with a new European directive.“At present, we are working on transposing the directive into Cypriot law,” she explained.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
