Hello and Welcome to Castanea’s June Newsletter! This month features our June picks of the month, the winners of our latest competition, a cashmere care guide and some fashion inspiration for styling your Castanea garments.
Design Your Own Cashmere Competition
In an attempt to encourage aspiring designers to make the most of their extra time spent at home recently, Castanea decided to create a design competition to allow designers to reflect. To use this time to draw inspiration from past experiences, movies you have loved, art you have been moved by, structures that blew you away, books you couldn’t put down.
The winning design will be made from 100% cashmere for our Spring Summer 2020 collection. It will also be showcased and New York and Paris Fashion Week and sold in partnership with our International & Irish stockist Havana Boutique, Emporium Kalu, Samui and Les Jumelles with all profits donated to charity.
We were absolutely blown away with the sheer talent and amazing designs that were entered into the competition. It was so inspiring to see everyone’s sketches, mood boards and hear the stories behind their designs. Huge congratulations to our winners Renate Murphy and Jane Ritchie, we cannot wait to bring your sketches to life.

However, cashmere does fall into the hand wash and dry clean only category and there are harsh consequences to washing your cashmere incorrectly. To ensure that you get the most out of your cashmere, follow our step by step guide on how to care for your cashmere.
