The Factory & Atelier Lake Como, Italy
FROM FINE ART TO A HAND BUILT FERRARIS, THE ITALIANS ARE FAMOUS THE WORLD OVER FOR THEIR EXTREME PASSION IN QUALITY AND OBSESSION TO BEAUTIFUL DETAIL.
IT IS REMARKABLE THEN THAT LAKE COMO ITALY HAS BEEN AN INDUSTRY SECRET FOR SO MANY YEARS AS IT HAS PRODUCED THE FINEST SILK IN THE WORLD FOR CLOSE TO 600 YEARS.
THIS TOTALLY UNIQUE SKILL AND KNOWLEDGE HAS BEEN PASSED THROUGH GENERATIONS OF FAMILIES IN COMO AND WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO SHARE THIS COUTURE HERITAGE TO PRODUCE YOUR SILKS.
AT COMO SILKS EVERY SILK YARN IS SPUN, WOVEN AND HAND FINISHED ON LAKE COMO IN OUR FACTORY (PENTAGONO SETA) WHICH OPERATES THE BEST SILK LOOMS IN THE WORLD. IT IS PRECISELY THIS HERITAGE AND PASSION THAT IS WOVEN THROUGH EACH AND EVERY COMO SILKS PIECE.
WE HAVE CHOSEN THREE CORE WEAVES REVIVED FROM ARCHIVES AND BLENDED WITH MODERN, INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUES TO CREATE SOMETHING TRULY EXQUISITE AND UNIQUE IN EACH AND EVERY PIECE
Fil-Coupé is a rare and difficult weave to achieve with threads being back to leave perfect frayed edges.
We have revived and re-mastered it using an extremely rare loom on Lake Como.
To make each piece takes 19 processes, 13 people, 2 looms and hand finishing for precise mm fine cutting.
Graphic jacquard is a new and totally unique weave to Como Silks.
It is a essentially a super soft, hyper deiatiled silk tapestry thats so refined it looks alomost printed. We are the world leaders in this unique technique.
To make each piece - 1 full day to weave, 16 people, 2 factories.
Started and finished by hand at our atelier on Lake Como Italy.
Like Graphic jacquard Fil Jacquard is a completely new and unique weave to Como Silks.
Mid weight, pure and with the highest definition, it is 100% Italian silk crafted in such a way it creates a beautiful rich pearlescent effect that changes with the light.
To make each piece - 3/4 of full day to weave, 13 people, 2 factories, for this unique pearlescent finish. Started and finished by hand on Lake Como Italy.
