FRANK & OAK X SHOKAY
We had the honour of collaborating with Frank And Oak to introduce Shokay’s responsible yak wool to their incredible knitwear collection.
Their cosy knit collection guarantees 30% more warmth and 120% more breathability than traditional wools.
Responsible yak wool transformed into comfortable and mindful knitwear that helps to make Tibetan regions greener almost sounds too good to be true, right?

THE HAPPIER THE YAK,
THE COMFIER THE KNITS
The story of the yak is one that we love to tell here at Shokay
Tibetan yaks are semi-nomadic, graze on natural and pollution-free grass and have the space to roam and explore!
Most importantly, the herding process involves no cruelty, caging or unnatural treatment towards these beautiful animals.
"Today, yak wool remains one of the rarest fibres used globally despite its sustainable potential, extreme softness and being 30% warmer than wool."
-Carol, CEO and co-founder
Yaks emit minimal greenhouse gases and live on a rich natural vegetation diet. Rarely grazing too long in one place, they roam freely in peaceful herds across the regions of Tibet.
Tibetan herders responsibly hand-comb our yak wool each summer during their natural shedding season. Only the finest fibres are collected to produce responsible yak knitwear and accessories.
Our partners, manufacturers, and designers collaborate to prove that there is true power in partnership. Our incredible and transparent supply chain ensures that your consumer can trace the journey of their favourite knitwear.
MAKING TIBET GREENER
We made it our mission to bring yak wool to the global market to improve the livelihood of the herders and offer the fashion industry a new sustainable material.
When you partner with Shokay, you’re choosing to give families in the Tibetan region fresh opportunities whilst paving the way for a more sustainable future in fashion.
THE ELEMENT OF EXCLUSIVITY
Despite its premium quality feel, extreme softness and durable quality, many fashion brands still need to familiarise themselves with the amazing benefits of yak wool.
That means you'll be one step ahead of your competitors when you introduce yak wool to your knitwear line.
