Orwell + Austen Cashmere

Orwell + Austen create contemporary cashmere knitwear and cashmere accessories. The brand combines the finest luxury fabrics with bold prints and colours to create eye catching statement pieces. Each piece is designed in England by brand founder Jessica Schuhle-Lewis. Orwell + Austen work closely with a small family run factory in Nepal, a region renowned world over for producing some of the finest quality cashmere, to create each item. The factory still employs a number of artisanal hand knitting, dying and weaving techniques, and the brand works to utilise the skill and craftsmanship of these artisans in its designs, to produce luxurious pieces to be loved and last a lifetime.
