Edoardo Accornero & Giuseppina Alemanno, Accornero Cashmere at the Maison d'Exceptions show

(English subtitles available)
“Accornero Cashmere came from a dream, that of reliving the traditions of the trades of yesteryear, weaving by hand in our case. Because with time, this trade has been mechanized and standardized. Industrial productions are for a huge number of people. Whereas what interests us is excellence, rarity, the small quantities which are fundamental for guaranteeing the high quality of the products. Our know-how, which my companion develops, is that of artisanal dying, following a traditional approach which is more oriental : the shibori, brought up to date. Creativity is the real innovation, she always studies new shapes which allow her to go further. The ideal is always to go further!”
