Italy is the country of artisanal craftsmanship. Our partner is located in a small town between the lakes in northern Italy and the border to Switzerland. It is here, the knitters of Lombardy say, that the best cashmere is produced, as they have the mountain water, so essential in the finishing process of the production of a cashmere knitwear garment. It is that water that gives the cashmere its incomparable softness without damaging the natural protection of the fibre that gives it longevity.
HOW I FOUND OUR PARTNERS?
Before founding London W11, I worked several years with luxury goods. I had the luck and joy to work with the most exciting brands out there in their very exciting times of immense growth. Having worked with brands like Prada, Helmut Lang, Jean Paul Gaultier and Calvin Klein I was in a network that has access to the best of the best.
No compromise is made on the yarn! I buy it from Loro Piana in Italy and Todd & Duncan in Scotland: the finest and most durable yarn available on the market and a guarantee of ethical sourcing. The finest yarn is critical for manufacturing the unique garment we create for you: trending luxury garments beyond time.
