The Ciuta is a variety of small sheep found in the Italian Alps, where our factory was first founded. These ancient herds were progressively abandoned in favor of more profitable breeds, and the Ciuta sheep is now listed as an endangered species.
This regional issue was something we couldn’t ignore. It inspired us to design an important recovery program to support and promote the work of our heroic local shepherds and to preserve ancient textile traditions.
The results were sensational, and they allowed us to create precious fabrics that draw on authentic craftsmanship.
