Blog Tergel: The yak and our news


From Steppes to Style: The tale of Tergel- Bridging Cultures, Crafting Dreams...

Meet Tergel Gerelt, the visionary founder behind Tergel, a brand that weaves together the rich tapestry of Mongolian heritage with the sophistication of Parisian design. Tergel's story is one of passion, cultural fusion, and a relentless pursuit of beauty.

Born and raised in the vast steppes of Mongolia, Tergel's childhood was steeped in the traditions of her nomadic ancestors. Surrounded by the rugged beauty of the Mongolian landscape and the warmth of the nomad's yak herds, she developed a deep appreciation for the natural world and the craftsmanship that has sustained her people for generations.

However, Tergel's journey took an unexpected turn when she ventured beyond the Mongolian horizon to pursue her dreams in the City of Light – Paris.

Enthralled by the elegance and creativity of Parisian fashion, she immersed herself in the world of design, studying at Parisian fashion school and honing her craft under the guidance of master artisans.

Yet, amidst the glamour of Paris, Tergel's heart remained tethered to her homeland. Inspired by the timeless beauty of Mongolian textiles and the resilience of her people, she envisioned a brand that would bridge the gap between East and West, tradition and innovation.

Thus, Tergel was born – a manifestation of Tergel's dual identity, a celebration of her Mongolian roots and her Parisian sensibility. Each Tergel creation is a testament to the artistry of Mongolian artisans, who handcraft every piece with care and precision, using only the finest yak wool and yak down sourced from the pristine landscapes of Mongolia.

But Tergel is more than just a brand – it is a philosophy, a commitment to sustainability and ethical practices.

Tergel works closely with local communities in Mongolia, empowering artisans and preserving age-old techniques passed down through generations. With every purchase, customers not only acquire a piece of exquisite craftsmanship but also contribute to the preservation of Mongolian culture and the protection of its natural heritage.

At the heart of Tergel lies a simple yet profound belief – that beauty knows no borders, that craftsmanship transcends time and place. With each collection, Tergel invites you on a journey of discovery, where East meets West, tradition meets modernity, and the spirit of Mongolia dances with the elegance of Paris.

Join us as we embark on this extraordinary adventure, where every thread tells a story, and every stitch is a testament to the enduring power of creativity, culture, and connection. This is Tergel – where heritage meets the "quiet luxury", and the world is our runway.
