If you discovered a material that, when you touched it, immediately filled you with joy -- would you ever let it go? Would you want to roll around in it? Fill your wardrobe with it? Dress your baby or dog with it? Cover your couch with it? If you discovered Kashwére you would.
A sensational synthetic fabric that's a cross between cashmere, chenille and fleece, Kashwére is one of the softest things I have ever put against my body. What started as a small company making robes has exploded and now manufactures everything from baby wraps and men's caps to blankets, bath mats, socks and day beds. Kashwére is so amazingly soft and delectable, that major spas, including those at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and Four Seasons Whistler, outfit their treatment rooms with the furniture.
The fabric is completely washable (washer and dryer safe) -- even pillow covers come off the couch for easy cleaning. There's a Kashwére boutique in LA on Melrose and a line of dog products available at FurrMe. I stumbled upon Kashwére at Plush Living, a great home store in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood, that is, I believe, this city's exclusive carrier of the line.
