Mongolia's Cashmere

53 images Created 8 Dec 2013

The production of cashmere is one of Mongolia's biggest industries however with Mongolia's mining boom the traditional nomadic life of Mongolian cashmere herders is being threatened. These images are from a trip into the Gobi desert where nomadic life still remains despite water and land shortages. I also visited Ulan Bator's largest cashmere producing factory in the industrial west of the city, here they export the finest quality cashmere all over the world.
