Il Borgo Cashmere, knitting fantasy

Originality is in the very nature of Il Borgo: whether hand-knit or machine knit, crochet or macramé, its work is based on ongoing research into knit stitches that make use of a wide range of fine or thick yarns. Deeply attached to tradition, the Italian company based in Borgo San Lorenzo continually strives to reinvent it, to adapt it to the most varied styles, to update it through the use of cutting-edge technology or mixes of materials of very different natures, such as fur, leather, feathers and chains.
The company was founded in 1949, and continues to use semi-mechanical knitting machines dating from the 1940s to produce high-end knits, gloves and accessories. With a strong family tradition, it is taking part today in the development and dissemination of know-how that have been been passed down over generations.
From February 16-18, 2016, Il Borgo participates in Maison d’Exceptions, the space at Première Vision dedicated to haute création.
