Joining forces to introduce a luxurious new cloth

and the rare, limited-edition Tengri cloth.
Watch the video:
Tengri has produced a hopsack weave fabric exclusively for Huntsman, woven by Yorkshire-based R. Gledhill Ltd, a family business that has been spinning fine woollen yarns for more than 70 years.
This extremely limited-edition cloth is woven from our rare Khangai Noble Yarns®. These yarns are superior to those of any other yak fabric, and this extraordinary cloth is available in its unique undyed silver (especially rare) and natural colouring, as well as a bright new navy blue, developed especially for this fabric using an eco-friendly dyeing process.
Huntsman, the esteemed Savile Row tailor, has an extraordinary history that stretches back over 165 years. The house creates impeccable bespoke suiting for the most discerning clientele that includes nobility, royalty, statesmen and iconic Hollywood stars. Huntsman has always prided itself on its rich heritage and longstanding reputation as one of the best and yet innovative bespoke tailors on Savile Row.
“We are honoured to be working with one of the finest and long-standing tailors on Savile Row, an establishment which also happens to be the most innovative. It’s innovation that drives Tengri to push the boundaries of sustainable fashion and luxury goods, and our collaboration with Huntsman further realizes that luxury and sustainability do not have to be mutually exclusive. The exclusive new cloth celebrates our shared dedication to rich heritage, integrity, craftsmanship and style.”
Nancy Johnston, Founder, Tengri
“At Huntsman, we have offered the ultimate in luxury tailoring for 167 years. We are dedicated to sourcing limited-edition luxury cloths, the very best available in the world at any time. To be working with Tengri and to discover this very unique fabric is truly special. The fibres of the Khangai yak, indigenous to this very specific region of Mongolia, transcend yak yarns and cloths currently available in the luxury market. With Tengri we are able to offer some very precious rare colours, and key for Huntsman, finding exquisite fabrics that stand up to the stresses and tests of time. A Huntsman garment should be able to endure for generations! We are also very proud to be offering a truly sustainable option to our clients, there are not many luxuries in the world you can buy that help people, wildlife, and natural habitats. We fully support and embrace Tengri’s philosophy – ‘Noble Yarns, Noble Ways’.”
Pierre Lagrange, Owner, Huntsman
Huntsman will offer clients the chance to own bespoke pieces, made in this new Tengri cloth, with each garment taking between 60-80 hours to craft by the prestigious establishment’s cutters and tailors. The rarity of Khangai Noble Yarns – on average, just 100 grammes of fibres can be hand-combed from each yak once a year – means this cloth is extremely limited in availability, with only 60 metres produced. Therefore only a very limited number of pieces can be made, on a first-come, first-served basis.
