The choice of the best species of sheep, goat, camelid and leporidae breed makes it possible to obtain precious and in fact “noble” fibers. Italy, and in particular the Biella area, is the most important production center for high quality textiles and consequently a priority for the Alvigini Noble Fibers.
As Pier Giuseppe and Luca Alvigini argue in their book "The fibers closest to heaven", if you get used to champagne and Rolls Royce, it is then very difficult to drink sparkling wine or drive a small car. The same happens with cashmere, alpaca, mohair, camel, angora and merino wool. It is an unprecedented testimony of the divine greatness that meant to repay these creatures, sent to live in lands so inaccessible and in pastures so thin and so stingy with food, with mantles of enchanting refinement.
The "noble" raw material guarantees a final product of great quality, soft for the touch and heartening for the spirit.
Like any family-run company, passion is the engine that permits us to preserve and convey the core values of the business over the years.
For over sixty years Alvigini's objective has been to provide quality fibers, to be the exclusive support of high level textile manufacturing.
Words are not needed, they would only serve to spoil the atmosphere, the enchanted moment suspended between earth and sky that the lens of the photographer was able to capture. A charm that human hand is already forced to break in order to demand from these animals the tribute required of them by the laws of nature. But such is the perfection of the final product, such is the quality of the fabrics that our industry is capable of producing today, that the harmony of inaccessible pastures truly ends up reviving in the garments we wear.
