We will focus on understanding the tradition and heritage of creating Luxury Cashmere knits in Italy and the huge difference with industrial cashmere industry. We will talk about the remarkable new project “Malo forever” on Cashmere regeneration service in Boutique.
Malo in Latin means literally “I prefer” when in a situation someone chooses between a good cashmere and an exceptional cashmere like Malo cashmere. Malo has a long tradition of producing in-house cashmere in Campi di Bisenzio near Florence in Tuscany (Italy). We meet during Pitti Immagine Uomo, the most important International event for menswear and men accessories collections and menstyle trends, which happens in Florence twice a year.
To start our discussion, I invite Walter Maiocchi to describe the process of creation of Precious Cashmere knits? What is the difference between handmade and industrial cahmere fnits? How to create a handcrafted cashmere knit? How many people are working in production internally?
Malo, with its unique savoir faire, has many projects ongoing to grow internationally : boutique openings in New York, Monte Carlo and the launch of the e-commerce in last December to deliver worldwide. Last but not least the project “Malo forever”, one of a kind, consisting of taking care of a Malo cashmere through a return in boutique to extend its lifespan. This is true sustainability in action! Let’s listen to the best ambassador of Malo’s ambitions, the CEO Walter Maocchi.
