More than just a label
We are a technology specialist in noble yarns – so named for their superior quality and performance – Mongolian yak fibres that are as soft as cashmere, warmer than merino wool, breathable, hypoallergenic, and water-/odour-resistant.
More than just a label, Tengri is a collective movement built by people pioneering a new heritage. We’re a London-based design house built on technological innovation, British design, fairshare business and a 100% transparent supply chain.
Creating Tengri Noble Yarns®
All Tengri Noble Yarns® are made with 100% natural and undyed Khangai yak fibre, from a rare species found only in the remote Khangai mountains of western Mongolia. These yak roam semi-wild, often at high altitudes, and endure extreme summers and harsh winter conditions. Their soft undercoats consist of fibres that are light and naturally robust, resistant to odours and water. These fibres can be sourced only by hand-combing each yak individually, once a year, when the animals shed their winter coats.
Material World: Tengri x Selfridges
“Material World” takes a bright new look at sustainable innovation, through materiality and the fascinating provenance of the fabrics of fashion. The project shares the stories of the best future-gazing design and production, while honouring the strengths of traditional textile manufacturing practice. It offers an opportunity to discover, experience and buy from new creative brands that pay special attention to sustainability in fashion and design.
Tengri has created a special capsule collection that demonstrates the brand’s legacy, inspired by the relationship between humans and their environment, the juxtaposition between nature and urbanisation and commonality between the Mongolian and British landscapes.
