Albiate

Founded by Guiseppe Caprotti in 1830, then under the name Manifattura di Albiate . At that time, the company acted as a distributor of yarns to the nearby weavers. A decade later, manufacturing on its own started and Albiate grew. Today, they are the market leader in lightweight fabrics and have a large selection of innovative shirt weaves. Albiate’s design is constantly evolving and they have about 1000 different variants per season. Now the shirt weaver is owned by the giant Albini Group.

Together with Albini and Thomas Mason, Albiate is our most important fabric supplier for semi and formal cotton fabrics. We use, among other things, their world famous two fold cotton in all of our shirts. The weaving plant holds extremely high quality in both cotton and how the fibers themselves are processed to create the fabric. The highlight of quality is our thin weave in Giza cotton which gives a completely unique luster and soft feel.

Solbiati

Family business founded in 1874 by Michele Solbiati in Busto Arsizio, Italy. Solbiati was the first to spin colored linen, to develop the soft and natural linen garment which is today regarded as the company’s key garment and where they, today are world leaders. Vittorio Solbiati, from the fourth generation, was the innovator. It was then discovered that the softness of the linen appeared after washing processes. It was thanks to the soft linen fabric that the unconstructed jacket was brought to life that quickly and became a symbol of the dimmed elegance. Solbiati today offers a wide range from casual to classic.

Solbiati delivers wonderful weaves that we use in fantastic linen and silk tights and trousers in the summer. We also recommend the cotton qualities that perform best in soft, pliable and unstructured jackets.
