The Scarf Manufacturer

Location: Como, Italy

Established: 1931

About the factory: Moments away from the shores of Lake Como, producing for the leading luxury brands of the world. The family run factory specialises in natural fibres and continually invests in the latest technology, thereby combining both modern and traditional techniques to make our beautiful scarves. 

About the construction process: The yarns are dyed to the our specified colour and then woven into place ensuring the colour combination is maintained. The edges are then hand rolled and the ends of the scarves are frayed. Our labels are then neatly sewn into place. 

An overview of the process: 

  • Thousands of yarns are carefully threaded into the weaving machine

  • If one thread snaps the whole machine will stop

  • Once woven the fabric is checked by hand for quality control 

  • A specialist machine is then used to print our design onto the scarves 

  • Each printing machine is different and is controlled by a specialist CAD program

  • The 'colour kitchen' mixes the colour that is going to be printed onto the scarves

  • In order to screen print every design has a screen developed

  • Each screen printing table is electronically run

  • The dye is placed on the screens carefully before the machines wipe the dye over the fabric

  • The fabric is checked for any discrepancies before it is dyed.
