WELCOME TO CASHMERE MOON
WHO WE ARE
Our philosophy is simple: we believe in the “slow shopping” concept. Buy quality and cherish it for many seasons to come. With that in mind, every season I select a capsule edit of womenswear and accessories that are wearable, accessible and have that “make-me-feel-good” factor, so important when we women decide to make a purchase. All lines are created by established or emerging British and international designers.
My name is Marta and I am the founder and owner of Cashmere Moon. I founded it in 2016 after 12 years of working as womenswear and accessories buyer at baska, one of Cambridge's finest fashion establishments. It was time to go solo.
WHAT WE DO
Some of the strongest bestsellers at baska were knitted products and accessories so launching an online store that would offer a strong collection of knitwear was a natural step. Since I find good design simply irresistible, I also select beautiful lines of womenswear and accessories, such as scarves, leather goods and hats. For Spring/Summer 2017 we have introduced jewellery; another aspect of everyday life I find terribly seductive.
Let me be honest: I love quality knits, period. When faced with soft yarns, I can't hide my excitement about the beauty of knits. My love affair with knitwear started while I was studying towards a degree in Fashion Design at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University. The knitwear course I took was a true eye-opener about the potential hidden in the humble concept of knitting. The sensual softness only the best quality yarns can offer, their luxurious elegance and flexibility, these are all very good reasons to invest in a quality cashmere sweater, a cosy wool dress or a soft scarf. The long - lasting factor and is an extra bonus.” After all, life would be so ordinary without a touch of luxury!
After the San Francisco chapter, I moved to Milan, Italy, where I worked for the Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana and designed for emerging fashion brands such as Patrizia Pepe and The Bridge.
This work experience brought me into deeper understanding of the luxury goods market and the meaning of the phrase "quality fashion."
When I moved to Cambridge to work at baska, one of Cambridge's finest independents,
I introduced designer womenswear and for 12 years had the pleasure of dressing my devoted Cambridge clientele and injecting a touch of glam into their wardrobes.
Look at our product range and you will find top quality cashmere and natural yarns knitwear alongside accessories sourced from talented designers whose fashion DNA has been built with excellent sense of style, attention to details, and a profound knowledge of garment construction. A selection of beautifully printed cashmere and wool-blend scarves will certainly catch your eye if you like colour and print.

#Caractere #Cash Ca #Charli #Decadorn #Electronic Sheep #Essentiel Antwerp #Inouitoosh #Jeff #Me&Thee #Pazuki #Lamb1887 #Vue Sur Mer #Zanetti
In October 2016 we launched our own collection of beautiful cashmere garments, made of 100% Mongolian cashmere yarns and designed here in the UK.
Machine washable, we hope you enjoy their softness and timeless design.
I love to meet customers face to face and give them a personalized advice on styling, finding most suitable outfits, building their seasonal capsule, having a laugh and a good chat. If you live in Cambridge, don't hesitate to book this free and pampering personal shopping service at the comfort of your own home.
Want to know what our friends think of this experience? One of our customers says:
"I'm delighted with the purchases I made yesterday and the entire experience of personalized shopping brought to my doorstep was a treat and also a very efficient process, because the selection of items brought to me had already been edited to my taste, look, size and lifestyle. Guidance was given (what to wear with what and how) but there was absolutely no pressure to buy. A bonus for me in shopping like this is that I can tap into my own wardrobe and see what potential purchases will work with existing content. Also one on one discussion is a luxury – no interruptions - I had Marta’s undivided attention. Clothes shopping for most of us is a process and we want to get it right. The service offered at Cashmere Moon makes the process efficient, accurate and very special."
