Since 1984, CCMI has made important contributions to support the integrity of camel hair and cashmere products and to promote the benefits of these fine luxury products to the public. Recent achievements include:

  • Provides guidance to testing laboratories world-wide for identification and evaluation of camel hair and cashmere fiber, fabric and products.
  • Won final judgment against several major retailers and a garment manufacturer for mislabeling of camel hair and cashmere garments in 1986.
  • Conducted annual media relations campaign to build awareness for cashmere and camel hair products and the mislabeling issue. CCMI secured favorable coverage with the trade press as well as major television and radio stations, newspapers and magazines.
  • Established a close working relationship with the U. S. Customers Service and Federal Trade Commission to monitor the labeling of imported and domestic cashmere and camel hair products.
  • Formed relationships with supplier organizations around the world in order to improve the quality of cashmere and camel hair fiber and its availability.
