Silk is a luxurious material par excellence, long compared to gold in its richness. Silk is among the most durable of natural materials, its natural brilliance, extremely soft texture and delicate thread have enthralled us for more than 4,000 years.
Manufacturing silk thread requires true expertise, as well as highly specific knowledge and techniques. However, its quality primarily depends on the filaments extracted from the silk cocoons as there are various qualities of silk. To make ORGANZINO velvet, only the best quality cocoons (grade A) are used. They come from matured bombyx mûri silkworms that are fed exclusively on white mulberry leaves to produce a silk of remarkable quality.
What makes ORGANZINO velvet such an exceptional product is the rigorous selection of the silk cocoons used in its production, as well as the flawless expertise of our Italian spinner, who transform silk filaments into what is known as organza thread. Organza is the most precious type of silk thread, formed from two single threads in a process that shapes the silk so as to better reveal its natural shine. Highly regular, it also has the best dye affinity, thus obtaining the deepest and most intense colors.
