CRAFTED BY SKILLED ARTISANS, OUR SILK-COTTON T-SHIRTS 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 T-Shirt, 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”.
- Michele, textile artisan.
