Supported by the Sustainable Fibre Alliance, OYUNA are representing the country of Mongolia with an installation at the London Design Biennale at Somerset House, London. The installation responds to the theme ‘Emotional States’.Toirog – Mongolian for circle invites you to explore the rich emotional story involved in the crafting of cashmere design pieces and the many lives touched along the way.
From tough nomads who nurture cashmere goats to craftspeople who transform raw cashmere fibres into design pieces, the installation demonstrates the cyclical nature of the cashmere story. Visitors are encouraged to touch and feel precious raw cashmere to experience its sensory connection to many aspects of Mongolian life and beyond.
OYUNA supports the vision of the Sustainable Fibre Alliance, that all cashmere is produced in an environmentally friendly way that safeguards the livelihoods of herding communities and protects the important, fragile environment in which they live.
