An Italian Adventure: Part 1

October 28, 2015

An Italian Adventure: Part 1

Adventure Ho! It was a special treat for Team Tuckerman when we recently decamped to pay a visit to our Italian fabric mill. It’s not every day you get a backstage pass to see how some of the world's best fabrics are made. We expected it to be a good show, but we were floored by what an impressive operation they run. This was not your grandfather's (or great-great-great-grandfather's) textile mill, that's for sure (we're looking at you, Samuel Slater).

There's more to come, but for now here's a teaser of what we found.

Not surprisingly, the magic begins with cotton. It's extra long staple and, in Tuckerman's case, it's also  GOTS Certified organic meaning that it's grown without the use of pesticides, insecticides, fertilizers, or GMO. It's a rare and particularly luxurious material.

From there, once it arrives at the mill, the cotton is dyed, warped, and woven by expert staff using state-of-the-art machinery. It’s an intricate process that ensures the quality and uniformity of the yarn, color, and weave. 

During our tour we were also impressed by the mill's passion for sustainability and commitment to reducing its environmental impact throughout the process. Cotton is just one piece of a larger picture, of course, one that also includes water, energy, and chemicals at various stages of production. 

If you love learning more about how things are made, stay tuned! Over our next several posts, we’ll take you on a more detailed look behind the scenes. More to come!
