Italian craftmanship and manual skills

“Italian craftsmanship and manual skills mean complete focus on the quality of the raw materials and manufacturing, attention to detail, passion for beauty and the recognition of talented people who can make items that are sought after across the globe”

Brunello Cucinelli modello d'impresa

Italian craftsmanship and manual skills epitomise the beauty of our products, our culture, our identity. Being acknowledged as “artisanal industrialists” is a value that is maintained over time; the whole world is fascinated by the products from our land, by our care in choosing raw materials, by our search for high quality and creativity in each single step of the production chain.

The collection proposal features artisanal products that are strictly made in Italy by approximately 400 craftsmen workshops that are highly qualified to perform each production phase. 

Approximately 75% of them are located in Umbria, the cradle of precious ancient handcrafted techniques, which are cherished and passed down mostly in families from generation to generation.

Thanks to the great number of workshops involved along the entire manufacturing process, some of which are situated in key industrial districts across Italy, the manual component accounts for 52% of the collections.
