Samantha Jones lounges on an ancient stupa at the Erdeni Dzuu Lamasery in Kara Korum wearing a soft pink cashmere gown. By the time this dress reaches a woman like Samantha, it has been combed from the goats in Mongolia, marketed in Russia, cleaned, spun into yarn, dyed and knitted by Ballantyne in Scotland.
