Our road map towards 100% Sustainability

What has guided us, for years, is the definition of a road map towards 100% Sustainability for a totally eco-friendly business growth. Important goals have already been achieved, new green projects are being implemented.

Our will is to ensure the traceability of each stage of processing, to gurantee a greener world for future generations. This is also why we work every day to ensure that our fabrics obtain certificates of conformity, in compliance with current criteria and in compliance with consumers who are increasingly careful to make sustainable purchases.

The choice of favoring noble fibers

By renewing our collections every year, we have begun to produce fabrics, giving more and more priority to the processing of noble fibers. Alpaca, camel, virgin wool, mohair and silk are the fibers that give life to natural fabrics of extreme value in which the use of artificial colors is reduced.

These raw materials, selected from reliable and quality suppliers, are collected in total respect of the animals and the environment, and then processed through a long process of transformation. The result are fabrics of excellence, inimitable and exclusive.
