About

Mohair South Africa, the industry body for mohair in South Africa, is working towards a more sustainable and responsible future.

By protecting the authenticity and origin of responsible mohair fibre, they are not only protecting the land from degradation but also the livelihoods of the 30,000 local people the industry employs. With South Africa representing approximately 50% of the world’s mohair, this latest partnership goes a long way to help the industry improve and move towards better, more sustainable practice as a whole.

In combination with the recent launch of the Responsible Mohair Standard and the training and education programs at grassroots level, Mohair South Africa is transforming the industry and the reputation of South African mohair.

 “The focus of the South African mohair industry is a commitment to working towards a more sustainable and responsible future, taking the environment, the animals, and the people into consideration. The addition of scientific traceability through Oritain is very exciting for the future of the mohair industry.” - Lindsay Humphreys, Head of Global Business Development & Sustainability, Mohair South Africa
