June Cashmere started with the vision of J.C. Christensen and his family, owners of Morning Star Fiber, located in North Carolina. In 2007, they met a group of Kyrgyz artisans and became aware of the need for revitalization in the Kyrgyz fiber industry. Shortly thereafter, Christensen connected with Sy Belohlavek from Ohio, who had previously worked in Kyrgyzstan.
