We carefully select our partners, choosing to work with companies that share our values. It is for this reason that we decided to collaborate with Manteco, a historic Italian company that manufactures premium quality and circular fabrics since 1943.
The fine virgin wool used by Manteco comes from mulesing-free sheep, and it is processed through a winning mix of tradition and innovation, thanks to more than 80 years of experience. This precious raw material is spun, woven, and finished to ensure a zero-mileage and zero-waste production system.
MWool® - Recycled Wool
MWool® is the next generation of recycled wool, distinguished by careful raw material selection, strict quality control throughout the entire manufacturing process, and a Durability Treatment to ensure performance and recyclability. This precious raw material is spun, woven, and finished in a zero-mileage and zero-waste production system.
QUALITY FABRICS SINCE 1943
Enzo Anacleto Mantellassi, the company's founder, began collecting second-hand military goods in the 1940s to repurpose them. Each garment was shredded and taken back to fibers and then used to create fine recycled wool yarns without the use of chemicals, through a mechanical and wet process. To this day, Manteco creates luxury and sustainable fabrics as a result of a great heritage, high creativity and constant research.
The Archivio Manteco is housed in a historic renovated spinning mill that contains the brand's entire history, preserving all textiles colors, and patterns produced since 1943. It is more than just an archive; it is a constant source of inspiration for fashion designers, researchers, and schools, as well as a venue for high-profile events and meetings.
