Waste not. These quilts by Sun Moon Lake Goods are created by Moonching Wu of scraps of old cashmere sweaters. The sweaters may have been donated or turned up at thrift shops with holes in them.

With a hole, a cashmere sweater loses value as an item of apparel even though the material itself is still soft and comfy. This reuse retains the function of the cashmere and makes from it a new, fully funtioning quilted blanket.

As Sun Moon Lake Goods says themselves: We believe in responsible production and consumption, which are good for the planet Earth. Environmentally concious plus, we think the pieced-together appearance of the blankets is beautiful.
