Cashmere and Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute

Background and History

The Cashmere & Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute (CCMI) is an international trade association representing the interests of producers and manufacturers of camel hair and cashmere fiber, yarn, fabric and garments throughout the world. Formed in 1984 as the Cashmere & Camel Hair Manufacturers Institute of America, the Institute changed is name in 1990 to better reflect the international character of its membership and activities. Today, the Institute is the leading authority on domestic and international issues concerning these luxury fibers and advises on labeling, international standards, supply and market trends.

Cashmere and Camel Hair

The goal of the Institute is to promote and protect the image and integrity of camel hair and cashmere textile products. This is accomplished through:

  • Government relations
  • Product testing
  • Media relations
  • Industry relations

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS

CCMI represents the interest of members at both national and international levels and works with appropriate government bodies whose activities affect the industry.

PRODUCT TESTING

CCMI monitors the marketplace for mislabeled camel hair or cashmere garments and provides a free fiber content testing service for CCMI members, manufacturers and retailers to determine if products are accurately labeled. This service is not available to consumers.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

CCMI actively works with trade and consumer media to communicate to the business community and general public about trends and issues facing the camel hair and cashmere industry and its products.

INDUSTRY RELATIONS

CCMI provides a forum for industry leaders world-wide to meet and discuss important issues and to identify workable solutions for the common good of the industry.

CCMI's staff offers professional consulting services and advice on issues specific to the camel hair and cashmere industries including government relations, international standards, supply and market trends.
