Every design has a story. In this four-part series we will delve into all the elements of Iter Itineris that many may be unaware of. Sometimes it’s difficult to express the meaning of a garment with just one touch. It may sound bizarre or self-indulgent, but for us, we see and feel the passion, research, drive, concern, hope, logistics, achievement, quality - we see how the meaningful details become the meaning. So now, let’s begin. Allow us to tell you about the fabric.
Every fabric chosen is a journey. Whether it’s into the famous independent factory mills in Italy or down the countryside in Japan - Designer, Marco Vedovato doesn’t take these travels lightly. He seeks and finds. The search for the perfect fabric is never done in haste.
Unlike large productions, our limited pieces have a higher wastage due to its smaller quantities, uniqueness of the fabrics and its special treatments and finishings. All of these factors combined make for a very limited production and therefore an element of exclusivity in every collection launched.
Some fabrics are sourced from Japan while others are found in Italy - and its prerequisites for both are quite particular. These small factories are ones that still produce fabrics with old style looms and can afford to produce only small quantities of fabric - in other words, mass production is not on the cards.
From prewashed cotton, linen and silks to soft loose cashmere and extraordinarily rich and supple leather - it’s been chosen especially for you.
