Our cashmere is widely regarded as the finest in the world. It is so fine that 100.000 meters can be spun with just 1kg of yarn. The cashmere goats we use originate from Inner Mongolia where the climatic conditions lend themselves to producing finest cashmere in the world. From there the highest grade fibres arrive in Italy at Filatura di Trivero Srl in Gaglianico, where they are spun into yarn and traded to the most renowned weavers and luxury houses on the planet. Filatura di Trivero also create the highest quality cashmere blends such as our cashmere/silk, cashmere/linen, cashmere/wool. Together with our partner, Lanifico Arca, we weave the selected yarns into products that truly reflect our approach towards creating sustainable luxury accessories.
Like all hair, cashmere likes to be freshened up from time to time. Put the scarf in the washing machine on a cold hand wash only program once or twice a year to ensure sure the fibers don't dry out and maintains a long life. Dry flat on a towel. Do NOT tumble dry.

surprise for birthday
what a nice surprise to receive this Bruna Scarf with Selden art print from Marco Cini at the factory in Prato. We were on a holidays in Tuscany and on my birthday my husband arranged for the Crafted Society Scarf he bought, to be picked up in combination with a factory tour at the Lanificio Arca facility. It was great to meet Marco, and all the other staff, and see for ourselves how the real Italian stuff gets made. And it was not just Crafted Society getting from the machines ;) We also met Bruna, who worked at Lanificio Arca for decades and still manually checks all the cashmere pieces before they leave the factory. We met Marco and his lovely wife Christina later on in our holidays where they hosted us at their beach house. We became real friends. Honestly this trip and meeting real makers opened our eyes towards how products nowadays are made, and how we should make responsible decisions going forward. Advocates for life! And enjoying my Bruna Scarf every day.
