Knitting Masters: A Cashmere Tale

Cashmere is a fibre that transcends time. It brings to life luxurious finished products that blend tradition and innovation, celebrating timeless excellence.

At Luca Faloni, the only way to ensure the cashmere garments are of the finest quality is to rely on Italian artisans. Generation after generation, these masters honed their craft of transforming cashmere yarn into a work of art.

Over the years, we developed long term relationships with our partners: experienced and dedicated craftsmen who embody the best of the Italian tradition we aim to promote and represent.

From the yarn selection to the finished product, each step of this delicate process is perfectly tuned to create a garment that will last a lifetime: a manifesto of finest craftsmanship that speaks of Italian culture and heritage.

Sometimes, a leather belt can enliven your style like nothing else: a garment that will enhance the quality of any outfit and that you'll love wearing for years to come.

Leather belts of the highest quality ensure durability and uniqueness for your everyday wardrobe. They hold their shape nicely and adapt easily, becoming more comfortable over time and providing a stylish look even after countless uses.

They’re also highly versatile garments that fit perfectly with both casual and formal attires. You won’t need a plethora of belts, as long as you own a few in neutral colours to put on that will work on any occasion.

Today we’ll look into what makes our handcrafted leather belts unique and why they’re the ultimate choice to enhance all kinds of styles.

The Knitting Process

The first step involves knitting the various pieces of the cashmere garment separately and to size by using specialised machines. This is a procedure that has hardly changed since the 18th century, the only exception being the speed and accuracy of the German-manufactured machinery involved. Expert tailors supervise the process throughout to ensure each piece is flawless and ready for subsequent operations.

The next part is where the exceptional sartorial skills of our partners really come into play. All cashmere pieces are stitched together by expert hands in a slow, century-old process that requires all the seams are linked by hand. The final result is worth the wait: a premium quality product, guaranteed by exceptional raw material finished by experienced, meticulous hands.


By looking at the garment now you may think it’s ready, but other necessary steps are required to ensure the quality and long-lasting, luxurious feel of cashmere. Washing the piece with dedicated products, with little or no chemicals involved, is a crucial step that allows garments to take their final shape and achieve the softness typical of this material.

Lastly, the logo attachment and final touches are handmade by seasoned artisans with a unique eye for detail. This is followed by the ironing and final control operations to ensure the final product's quality and its sizing. Once ready, the cashmere garment is left to rest for 24 hours to let the fabric cool down and remove the steam.

Tradition and Artisanship

With over 60 years of experience in high-quality cashmere processing, our knitwear partner in Northern Italy is the perfect example of the quality and tradition we aim to represent. Now on its third generation, this small Italian laboratory oversees the entire process with us, ensuring each final garment is up to Luca Faloni’s premium standards.

Our partners make the most of the new technologies that simplify the artisans' tasks without affecting the final product's excellent quality we pursue: yet many of the processes involved in cashmere knitting are done manually or by machines that haven't significantly changed over the last century.

In a world where speed is of the essence, we aim at proving that the finest creations need time and passion. The allure of Luca Faloni’s elegant cashmere products results from outstanding yarn quality, artisanal craftsmanship and Italian heritage, bringing to life luxurious and truly exceptional garments.

Turin contains multitudes: a city that’s both industrial and artistic, ancient and modern, an amazing place of history and beauty where you can experience the authentic Italian lifestyle at its absolute best.

Torino is the northernmost major city in Italy, facing the majestic Alps and constantly caressed by its breeze. Yet, the city feels Mediterranean, with an atmosphere reminiscent of a southern flair that couldn't be more different from the hectic, metropolitan style of nearby Milan.

Nestled between the Po River and the Alps, Turin was a major national and European political centre for centuries. It was the first capital of unified Italy (the Kingdom of Italy), and the then-governing House of Savoy built majestic palaces and a modern infrastructure to celebrate the city’s importance.

Like most Italian cities, Turin went through a series of significant historical changes that determined its architecture and aura. It was one of the country's first and most industrialised cities between the end of the 19th century and the early 20th century; together with Milan, Turin and its industry laid the foundations for the post-war Italian miracolo industriale: it is, to this day, a crucial crossroad for industry, commerce, and trade.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next trip to Turin, here's what you can do in 24 hours in one of the most beautiful Italian cities.


Elegant, slim-fit, wrinkle-resistant, and timeless: for decades, chino pants have been an integral part of a man’s wardrobe thanks to their unique versatility and durability. This year, Luca Faloni reinterpreted chinos by adding a modern touch to a classic design, enriched by the traditional approach and attention to details typical of the Italian craftsmanship our garments radiate. The result is our new cotton twill winter chino: Cortina.

Cortina features a medium thickness, cotton twill gabardine, ideal for the colder seasons and giving a unique silky, luxurious feel on your skin. We decided to name our latest chinos Cortina to celebrate the iconic history and lifestyle of Italy’s most charming alpine town, famous for it’s apres ski.

This article will look into the history of this fascinating fabric and how our Cortina chinos are made.

Today we’ll look into what makes our handcrafted leather belts unique and why they’re the ultimate choice to enhance all kinds of styles.

The gabardine fabric our Cortina chinos are made of is a tightly woven warp-faced twill weave fabric. A firm and durable material, gabardine was created in the late 1800s by Thomas Burberry, the founder of Burberry, who wanted to create a new, versatile blend for his creations.

At first, gabardine became popular because it can hold its shape and does not wrinkle easily. When it started being waterproofed with lanolin, it also became a must-have for travellers and explorers worldwide. Today gabardine is a versatile and exceptional fabric for suits and casualwear and is often used to make chinos or pants that can stand the test of time.

Our gabardine fabric is crafted in Northern Italy from high-quality cotton twill and blended with 3% elastane to improve the garment’s comfort and durability. They’ll seamlessly adapt to your shape, and thanks to the thoughtful details and luxurious feel on your skin, they may well become your go-to chinos in any smart-casual situation.

In our Italian laboratories, we have reimagined this timeless classic by adding a modern touch and subtle details to bring exquisite garments to life.

With Cortina, this traditional process results in a contemporary garment with a practical and versatile design that will fit most autumn to spring outfits.

Cortina features internal double seams to ensure outstanding durability over time. The inner belt has embossed stitching, which will maintain the shirt tucked in more easily.

Our calf leather belts are the embodiment of timeless charm: built from full-grain vegetable tanned leather from Santa Croce. They will only get better with age and will last a lifetime, enriching your wardrobe and heightening the elegance of your formal outfits, but will also enhance your jeans and everyday style.

Dyeing & Quality Check

The pants are then dyed using a 'Tinto Capo' process resulting in a natural harmonious colour throughout. Additionally, dying the garment at the end ensures that the trousers won't shrink after the first wash.

The final stage to bring the Cortina chinos to life involves ironing the pants, first using machinery and then by hands. As it's the tradition in the oldest Italian mills, each garment is meticulously checked by expert artisans in all its details, from size to stitching, ensuring the quality and durability of the Cortina pants are in line with the excellent quality our garments always display.
