Hangai Mountain Textiles is a family-owned and run business based in Basalt, Colorado with a presence in Mongolia where they source fibers, and where its founders, Betina & Bill Infante, have lived and worked for more than a decade.
Their unique collection of yak down, baby camel and cashmere blankets and throws are knit and woven exclusively in Mongolia from hand-combed natural fibers, ensuring that the value-added production remains in-country for the herder families, the knitters and the weavers with whom they partner with.
Rare yak down is exquisitely soft, warm and, unbleached and undyed. Yak has a special sustainability story. Yak are relatively light on the land because they graze without uprooting the native steppe grasses like other animals.The yak down used to weave and knit our throws and blankets is sourced largely from the Hangai mountains, which inspired the brand name. The Hangai are located in Mongolia’s central heartland.
Hangai Mountain Textile's partners include herder families, local associations and cooperatives, as well as knitters and weavers who share our values that embrace fair trade, sustainable production, local empowerment, and traceability.
