Cheaney Launch A Very Exclusive Collaboration
Pioneering fashion and lifestyle brand, Tengri has launched an exclusive collaboration with heritage shoemaker Joseph Cheaney & Sons, exclusive to their Covent Garden store. 150 limited-edition pairs in three signature styles will be made to order for both men and women, introducing the first brogue shoe incorporating performance and material innovation with natural and sustainable noble fibres.
Taking the wearer from boardroom to mountain, and pushing the boundaries and performance of the classic brogue, the collaboration results in a custom collection of luxury footwear created for optimum comfort and mobility. The brogues benefit from the unique natural properties of Tengri Noble Fibres and feature the world’s first yak hair insole created with Tengri’s signature Khangai yak fibres, combed from the underbelly of the rare breed of yak just once a year. With only 100 grams of fibre available from each Khangai yak per year, the limited-edition Joseph Cheaney collection defines exclusive luxury.
Khangai yak grow hair with unique textures and colourings, found only in animals native to the remote Khangai region of Mongolia, where mineral-rich grasslands are grazed. The fibre, which is as soft as cashmere, has exclusive natural properties: it is warmer than merino wool and naturally resistant to odours and water. Naturally thermo-regulating, the fibres withstand temperatures from -40 to +40 degrees in the wild; they also regulate moisture, aiding optimum wearability.
A collection comprising three styles, including the Apex brogue shoe, the Vertex brogue boot and Pinnacle Chelsea boot, crafted in ethically and responsibly sourced, single origin, undyed leather. A layer of Mongolian sheep wool replaces the traditional rigid cork resin in the soles and a lightweight Vibram Gumlite sole enhances the shoes’ grip, cushioning and durability.
For a truly unique style accent, Tengri work with a patina artist to custom stain, by request, using the ancient process of patina with natural pigments. This personalised service, leaning on a sartorial process dating back to the early 1900’s starts from £120. Ensuring a wholly sustainable product, each pair is presented in a limited-edition dust bag made from Tengri’s exclusive Khangai Noble Fabrics, and boxed in FSC certified, fully recyclable packaging.
Tengri x Joseph Cheaney collection starts from £850 and is only available in Covent Garden.
£50 from every purchase will be donated to the Wildlife Conservation Society where funds will help to monitor and develop educational materials, training and outreach, to support nomadic herder families with the conservation of land and animals in the Khangai Mountains.
