A fiber of character!
The name alone – silk – evokes an imaginary made of ancient imperial courts of the East, crossings between land and sea, commercial routes of remote memory. Its production process, from raw material to yarn to fabric, is perhaps one of the most fascinating and well-known, like its qualities. In the pure version, it best expresses its character, which it maintains even when combined with other fibers. Soft, shiny and light, in summer it does not retain heat and gives pleasant sensations on the skin, as well as delighting the eyes.
Beauty and seduction
Suitable for being knitted and crocheted, silk is beautiful to see and feel on. To give you an idea of the effects, we present you two models in the shades of sea and sky, a breath of holiday air caught between the meshes of the openwork patterns: the delicate and seductive lingerie-style top; and the beach clothing coordinated, to live moments of relax in style.
