About taken from German Sustain Concept*:

"After working together successfully for many years, fashion designer Antonia Goy and architect Bjoern Kubeja launched their own fashion label in 2018. Here, exquisite tailoring meets timeless elegance and sustainable, enduring design. Working Title uses only the finest natural materials such as mulesing-free wool, cashmere, organic silk, organic cotton and Tencel from certified European manufacturers and rejects man-made fibres in order to minimise harmful residues through wear and disposal. The collections are manufactured in Germany, Italy and Poland."

* German Sustain Concept is a programme initiated by the Fashion Council Germany under the auspices of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) with partners Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation of Messe Frankfurt, Bikini Berlin and Showroom.de.

Lou Dungate
"Lou Dungate is an eponymous label, based in London. Focussing on sustainable production and luxury natural fibres, the core collection comprises of cashmere scarves and accessories. A self-taught knitter, Lou created knitwear professionally, by hand, for seven years and founded an award-winning wool shop before launching the label. Dedicated to promoting a slow and ethical lifestyle, Lou eschews the traditional fashion model in favour of creating timeless pieces of the finest craftsmanship, for a life well lived.
All Lou Dungate pieces are made with yarns spun in a family-owned mill in Italy that is over 50 years old. The mill is committed to the highest possible ethical and environmental standards of cashmere production.
The paper tags used on Lou Dungate products are fully recyclable and biodegradable, made with pulp that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
By 2020, our aim is to establish a circular fashion model by offering repair services and recycling facilities. The beauty of working with natural fibres means that Lou Dungate knitwear can be felted, to create new products like slippers and coats."

ERDOS is located in the inner-mongolian city Ordos. Not unusual for a Chinese company, they are also doing business in coal, electricity, metallurgy and chemistry.

I've seen their print ads in several high class magazines. They are leading an industry cluster for cashmere and velvet in the Dongsheng district of Ordos, this district holds 30% of the world's cashmere market share:

They claim to have 1500 retail stores in China which makes them to one of the few real brands in China and they are aspiring to become world famous and have retail shops in 7 international locations, amongst them L.A.

They hired designer Kevin Young in 2007 to found the brand 1436 to position them as high-end fashion brand and opened flagship stores in Shanghai and Beijing:
