CRAFTED BY SKILLED ARTISANS, OUR SILK-COTTON POLOS EPITOMISE CLASSIC ITALIAN WORKMANSHIP.
Our silk-cotton is produced by a renowned textile mill located in Italy’s Piedmont region. It’s been a family business since the 1700s, now run by the 9th generation.
To craft the cloth for our Silk-Cotton Polo, only the finest Mulberry silk fibres are meticulously selected to ensure the highest quality silk is guaranteed.
“These silkworms feed solely on the leaves of the Mulberry tree and produce a fibre with long filaments. This makes an exceptionally fine cloth that’s incredibly lustrous and drapes beautifully. This precious fibre is then knitted with long-fibre cotton to a ratio of 60% silk and 40% cotton. The end result is a cloth with a cloud-like softness.”
“The silk-cotton we produce for Luca Faloni is a knitted jersey with a 28 gauge, which feels substantial but not overly heavy. The fine knit construction provides natural stretch and great ease of wear. We then piece-dye the material to ensure an even colour throughout the cloth”.
