ITALIAN WOOL & CASHMERE
70% wool, 10% cashmere, 20% polyester
Our wool is yarned in Italy with Cashmere for a soft-handle and polyester for strength. Cashmere is obtained from the neck region of Cashmere goats. Widely recognized as being one of the world’s most luxury fibres, its rarity and natural lustre makes it one of the precious commodities in wool.
Our outdoor fabrics are lightweight, water repellent, windproof, and washable. Highly compressible, the apparel is ideal for situations where you need warmth and weather protection.
100% Genuine Italian Leather
Leather is a by-product of the meat industry, if not for the leather industry; this remarkable resource would go to waste. We use only Premium Italian Leathers as the strongest most supple kind. The material ends up moulding to your shape, repels water and wind, to keep you warm as another hide, for years.
Leather is a natural product; each hide gives a character to the garment, which is proof of its authenticity.
Our available type of leather – Nappa, Crunch, Wrinkle, and Drum Dye – and their colours are as follow.
Nappa is an even tight-grain, comfortable hand-feeling hide leather for garment.
Crunch is a texture-leather with marble-type veins running through which gives an extra worn-rich touch as it gets older.
Wrinkle is a process to distress the leather giving a wash-look and crinkle effect.
DRUM DYED FINISH
Very fine and soft- feel lamb leather. Drum-dyeing is a completely natural finishing process. Variations in shade may occur due to the natural dye being absorbed at different rates by the leather.
