Synopsis

Soft, chic and elegant, cashmere clothing keeps us warm all winter long. Once quite expensive, these exceptional items are now reasonably priced in stores such as Zara or H&M.

How did this product, which for a long time was a status smbol, become affordable? Where does this fibre come from? What are the new brands that are surfing on the cashmere trend? Are these low-cost clothes really worth it? What are the ecological and animal consequences of this industry from the other side of the world?

From Mongolia to France and from Italy to China, this film follows the thread of the cashmere course.
