Como silks scarves are handcrafted on the shores of lake Como where the best silk in the world has been produced for over 400 years.
It was the Duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza (a friend of Leonardo Da Vinci) who in 1470 had the enlightened idea of planting mulberry trees all around Lake Como.
In imposing that farmers must plant these trees, the Duke seeded the roots of the silk industry in Como and over the next 600 years it has grown and evolved to become the highest quality luxury silk accessory producer, in the world.
Its this heritage that has been influenced and interwoven with the culture of lake Como.
One of holidaying aristocrats, inspired artists, travellers, even fashion designers over the last 600 years that make Como completely unique.
The palatial villas, the calm waters, the incredible food and all with a micro climate that can make one feel like nothing else on earth matters, nothing is more special than those fleeting calm and somehow pure, Como moments.
To say the Italians are obsessive about quality that is 'Made in Italy' could be understatement.
From fine leathers in hand built Ferraris to hand stitched button holes on Emergi suits, Italy's passion is about quality above all else.
At Como Silks we expect nothing less. Every silk yarn is spun, woven and printed on Lake Como in our factory that has roots going back to the beginning.
We use jacquard and Fil-coupé effects that many factories cannot dream to replicate, making our pieces unique and with such impressive finishing and cutting, a single purchase means owning a true piece of Italian Heritage.
For us it's all about the pure luxury of silk. The delicateness and the quality that endures not to mention such beauty from something so natural.
We strive to be the best and always achieve it.
