Not sure, really. It struck me as odd at first, but I suppose they wanted to make their foray into cashmere this year, and the current CYC manufacturing facility(ies) weren't equipped for such a job. But I did research it a bit, and it just seems that some of the best cashmere is
spun in China. And I would hope/bet that CYC did their due diligence in determining which facility to employ for the job. There's the whole MIC debate, and we as modern, conscious consumers have been taught that MIC equates to poor quality and sweat shops -- but I guess we just have to accept that there are some items that plain & simple are best suited to be produced in a certain county or region, despite relatively recent stigmas surfacing around the aforementioned. But, for what it's worth, all my w+h cashmere this year has been really nice. Not just saying that. I wore my sweater about 5 times before I dry cleaned it. Came out looking crispy. No pilling yet (it will of course, though) -- but just overall a nice sweater (and toque, and scarf) Rag & Bone is all MIC now, too, correct? edit; oops, forgot to address the goose down outerwear. That....I just don't know. Cost cutting measures I guess (but alas those savings will of course not be passed to the consumer). You would think Canada would be the ideal place to manufacturer goose down outwear...with all the Canadian Geese and all..
