Meet the artisan
MA.AL.BI - Biella, Italy
When the economic crisis hit Italy in 2008, more than 50% of the textile industry in Biella, “The City of Wool,” folded. Rather than skimping on quality to cut costs, the Sasso family remained focused on producing top-of-the-line scarves and stoles as they had for 70 years. Utilizing only the finest yarns spun from the highest quality cashmere, wool, silk, linen and cotton, today MA.AL.BI is a reference point in the fashion industry and the maker behind many of the world’s top private labels.
