TENGRI X JOSEPH CHEANEY SUSTAINABLE COLLECTION
We have teamed up with pioneering fashion and lifestyle brand, Tengri, to launch an exclusive sustainable collection featuring a new interpretation of the classic brogue. 150 limited edition pairs in three signature styles will be made to order for both men and women, introducing the first brogue shoe incorporating performance and material innovation with natural and sustainable noble fibres.
Taking the wearer from boardroom to mountain, and pushing the boundaries and performance of the classic brogue, the collaboration results in a custom collection of luxury footwear created for optimum comfort and mobility. The brogues will benefit from the unique natural properties of Tengri Noble Fibres and feature the world’s first yak hair insole created with Tengri’s signature Khangai yak fibres, combed from the underbelly of the rare breed of yak just once a year. With only 100 grammes of fibre available from each Khangai yak per year, the limited edition collection Tengri X Cheaney defines exclusive luxury.
Khangai yak grow hair with unique textures and colourings, found only in animals native to the remote Khangai region of Mongolia, where mineral-rich grasslands are grazed. The fibre, which is as soft as cashmere, has exclusive natural properties: it is warmer than merino wool and naturally resistant to odours and water. Naturally thermo-regulating, the fibres withstand temperatures from -40 to +40 degrees Celsius in the wild; they also regulate moisture, aiding optimum wearability.
