IL BORGO - Borgo San Lorenzo, Tuscany
Four generations of family have dedicated their livelihood to growing Il Borgo into what it is today: the finest cashmere knitwear producer in all of Italy. Opened after World War II by great-grandmother Albertina, it began as a small shop specializing in gloves, hats and scarves, and now produces an extensive range of knitwear for the world’s top luxury brands. Of their 80 employees, more than half of work from home meticulously hand-stitching pieces one by one, which are later assembled on-site.
