Luna di seta

The birth of silk has distant origins.
In fact, if in Europe several centers of excellence developed over the centuries, it is in China that you have to go to go back to the discovery of this precious fabric, which took place more than 3,000 years ago, and from there walk the ancient Silk Road that from China crosses the Asian continent, to then touch the ancient Persia and the Arabian peninsula, and finally arrive in Europe.
Light and shiny, it has unique properties and requires mastery in the workmanship that has re-mained unchanged over the years.
Because if today we can wear all of silk, we can still (well) work it only with expert hands.
Together with our Silk Academy we discover the secrets of silk, because only with knowledge can we recognize and appreciate the best quality.
Thus it seems that the fabric comes to life and illuminates the wearer's skin.
Among the most popular features in summer there is the hygroscopic property, or the ability of silk to absorb moisture up to almost a third of its weight: the skin remains so fresh even on the hottest days.
For this reason, long-sleeved garments can also be worn with pleasure and lightness.

One of the most common processes is that of silk satin, also called satin.
Silk satin is particularly valuable for its processing: the fabric is in fact uniform and smooth, because the binding points remain hidden.
The name satin derives from the Chinese toponym Quanzhou (Zayton in medieval Arabic), the place from which the caravans that transported silk to other countries departed.
This particular type of processing is among the best to enhance the characteristics of the material: cool in summer, warm and comfortable in winter.
For this reason, it is often used for pajamas, clothing that can be used all year round and which, thanks to the originality of the prints, the fashion trend has transformed into daywear.
The quality processing of silk is not limited to the fabric, but also extends to the applications.
Among these, one of the most demanding is the soutache.
The soutache technique was born in Russia, in the time of the tsars: it was used to decorate the military pockets by applying trimmings and insignia, or to embellish the clothes of the tsars. The skill is in making the thread and the needle mark invisible which ensures lace and trimmings to the fabric.
An example of this is our baby dolls If soutache is a technique, Chantilly lace is a precious decoration.
Born in France, in the city whose name it bears, this very light and transparent silk lace is entirely embroidered by hand to appear soft and delicate to the touch.
Its typical texture is made up of flowers and garlands, as in our chemise, a garment that can be used as a nightgown, as a petticoat or a refined under-jacket
So far we have talked about techniques and processes that date back to past centuries, but digital technology has a fundamental role in today's production of silk garments.
The prints of our collections are made thanks to digital printing, which guarantees millimeter precision and the color clarity.
Thus, floral weaves and geometric patterns come to life, which thanks to the sheen of the silk, are particularly vivid.
