The design

It all starts with a drawing, done by hand by Paola Agopian and elaborated on the computer so as to allow the separation of the elements, the insertion of the logo, the edges and for the verification of the precision of the strokes

The silk

We only use high quality Italian silk, woven in the historical silk district of Como. The fabric which is commonly used for our scarves is the silk twill. With its characteristic diagonal pattern texture, I often use it for its versatility that allows it to adapt to different designs and colors; I also use crepe satin, more polished and refined, sophisticated and enveloping.

Hand hedging

The scarves are then sewn by hand. The hem of the foulard is called roulottage and is created by hand: the fabric is turned around creating a very thin roll and fixed with invisible stitches. It is an extraordinary passage that gives the garment that extra touch.

Finally the dress!

Once they are edged, the scarves are sewn together to make the dress; two corners of the scarf are closed in order to insert the golden chains that embellish the garment. The chains are made by expert craftsmen, and are treated with guaranteed and certified hypoallergenic finishes.
