Mongolian Cashmere Makes Its US Debut in Georgetown
Mongolian school friends Tosca Metz and Una Ganbold have turned a childhood dream into a reality with T&U, the cashmere boutique they recently opened on upper Wisconsin Avenue in the building formerly occupied by The Dandelion Patch.
"Our products are unique and authentic, made entirely in Mongolia," says Metz. "We carry three lines: Basic, Organic and Yama, which means goat in Mongolian, and the cashmere comes in over a thousand different possible colors. Our Yama line combines European styling with hand-made Mongolian wool. The coats are my favorite."
This is the very first Mongolian cashmere store in the USA, though the parent company, Gobi which started in 1976, has locations around the world, including Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
In addition to luxurious coats, there are capes, sweaters, vests, hats, scarves and socks for men and women. For the home, there are throws and blankets.
The shop is open from 10:00 am - 8:00 pm Tuesday through Sunday. Stop by now and on January 13 for their grand opening when customers will receive 10% off thier purchases.
T&U is located at 1663 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown. Tel: 202.338.0333
