Lemonwood was founded by Christine Peters to provide women with the opportunity to experience beautiful, luxurious, quality cashmere garments.
Lemonwood cashmere is thoughtfully designed in Oakville, Canada and manufactured in Nepal, Shanghai, and India.
Over the years, Christine’s extensive sourcing and product development background has allowed her to work with small factories around the world. She has carefully chosen factories which help empower women, are run by women, and/or are socially responsible to the environment and their community.
Lemonwood cashmere is manufactured by socially and environmentally responsible manufacturers. Each maker must provide a certificate, proving they are socially responsible, by not hiring under-aged workers and employing workers from impoverished backgrounds. They also must prove that they use sustainable materials that are not harmful to the environment, the health of the individual making the garments, or the consumer purchasing the garments. The cashmere wool used in Lemonwood garments are dyed with non-toxic dyes.
