In Search of
he World’s Precious Wools
In September 2015, Dominic Dormeuil published his book “In Search of the World’s Precious Wools” through the publisher Glénat, in homage to breeders from the ends of the earth.
He spent three years exploring breeding farms the world over to select the rarest fibres that the House then uses to produce exceptional fabrics.
He and photojournalist Jean-Baptiste Rabouan travelled through steppes, plains and tundra and crossed high plateaux to pay homage to these “people of wool”, whose herds and traditions are both so extraordinary and so vulnerable.
This was a pioneering trip to meet the producers of precious wools from Greenland to New Zealand, and taking in Peru, Ladakh, South Africa, Scotland and Central Asia.
This quest for rare fibres follows in the hoofprints of wool-producing animals: musk oxen, the cashmere, pashmina and mohair goats, camels, merino and Shetland sheep, vicuñas and alpacas.
