Most of the raw materials we use have a 100% natural origin.

Our philosophy is thatthe selection of suppliers, is based on stricts internal protocols and continuous tests on quality control. The origin of the raw materials is certified with the countries of origin and, according to the various types, they are mainly: New Zealand, Australia and Mongolia.
Here are the principal fiber we use in our production.

Natural fibers represent the 40% of the fibers used in the world, while 60% are from man-made fibers.
The natural fiber cotton is the most prevalent of which are produced annually about 25 million tons. Main producing countries are China, the United States, Pakistan, India, Uzbekistan, Turkey and Brazil. Cotton is highly prevalent in Africa (Mali, Benin, Burkina Faso, Chad) and is a source of survival for entire regions. The annual production of wool is just over 2 million tons, and the areas most affected by this type of economy are Australia, China, New Zealand, Iran, Argentina and the United Kingdom. Interesting attempts to develop farms and reconstruction of a production chain of native wool products are being tested also in Italy as an attempt to enhance a material that is otherwise intended for disposal in landfills. Other fibers important for the economy of producing countries are jute (the concentrated largely in India and Bangladesh), sisal, hemp, coir, linen, silk..
Cashmere wool, or cashmere or Kashmir, is produced by goats originating in the same Asian region, this breed has developed naturally this precious fiber to protect themselves from the harsh winter of pristine areas in which they live in freedom. This yarn, the value of which is second only to the even thin wool vicuna, is a unique quality and of inestimable value thanks to its extreme softness, lightness and extraordinary ability to protect in the same way from the cold and hot.
The merino wool is the fiber that is obtained from merino sheep.
This type of wool is particularly sought after because of its fineness, depending on the fact that the hair of a merino sheep is thinner than the hair of a sheep common. Generally, a hair with a diameter of 20 microns or less comes from a merino sheep.
This particular characteristic, added to the other common qualities of wool, make it a very valuable fiber, ideal for certain packages of clothing, especially men’s clothes. A dress of merino wool is in fact resistant to wear and fold like a wool suit common, but unlike this, being lighter, it can also be worn in the warmer seasons.
The fabric said familiarly cool wool or “wool four seasons” is generally made with merino wool.
Australian wool is assembled in bales and sold in traditional public auction, attended by buyers from around the world. Bales best, that is, with the finest wool, are traditionally bought by Italian wool mills
