“It is quality rather than quantity that matters.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Jemala is excellence. It permeates our culture and as a consequence, our products. We did not achieve this excellence easily; it came from years of continual research and development.
Jemala started following on from our success in ultrafine wool production, where we equalled the World record for the finest bale of wool ever produced. This event introduced us to European luxury, where few asked the price of a garment, or accessory; the focus was on quality. Always quality.
We collaborated with the CSIRO to find how to process this incredibly fine fibre. Once we had overcome this hurdle, we set about locating the best artisans in the World to collaborate with to start making sweaters and shawls.
OUR PRODUCT RANGE
“I have been working with textiles for a very long time, it is a joy every season to travel to the great European mills in Italy , Austria, France and Switzerland to mention a few of my favourites. There great warm fabrics for the winter months and of course the lighter weights for when the temperature warms up together with the great designs and colours that these weavers design are always changing and evolving.
It is rare that a fabric comes along which causes one to pause and simply admire and appreciate the ingenuity that is this new cloth ‘Warmsilk’ . The combination of the World’s finest wool with silk has brought an incredible new cloth, that is warm when cold, cold when warm, wrinkle free, dry on the skin and all from fibres that have evolved over millions of years.
Together as one, simply perfection.”
“The sweater arrived! Thank you very much. It is fantastic and my wife says that the colour is perfect. It seems to be of highest quality, also in particular the linking, not to speak of the material. Just beautiful.
Nearly too precious to wear!”
“The fabric is immaculate. It’s drape, sheen, warmth yet cool to the touch, barely makes you feel like you are wearing it.
I have worked within the textile supply chain for 20 years seeing fabrics from all walks of life! As a designer in textiles, I need to select carefully the right raw material to ensure the quality can be the best it can be, no matter how it is woven, knitted or finished. When it comes to technologies today I feel excited about what can be achieved, learning from experts in their craft, creating textiles to push our imagination. Warmsilk® is a fabric that demands attention. You want to touch it and to feel its’ cool silky handle, yet when you wear it and feel like its’ almost not touching your skin, yet you have a feeling of warmth that can only be described as the warm blanket you have been sleeping in.”
“I have received today your wonderful sweater and I thank you very much. A particularly pleasant and welcome gift for a fan of absolutely “special” and “unique” fibres like me. I am very proud to wear one of the rarest and precious item ever produced in the world.”
