Rubinacci is well know for the research of the best fabrics from all over the world, finding every time new shades of colors, new patterns, new fabrics.
Today I’m happy to welcome the most exclusive and unavailable Lotus Flower from Loro Piana:
Loro Piana, provider of the finest cashmere and wool products, has recently introduced the ‘discovery’ of a natural and antique raw material, the Lotus flower fiber.
The fiber has never before been used in the Western textile industry and is a rare find. Extracted from the stems of lotus flowers from the Burma lakes, the fiber must be weaved within 24 hours to avoid deterioration.
The Loro Piana Lotus Flower® is said to be one of the finest aquatic fibers ever, creating the perfect summer fabric thanks to its exceptional breathability, soft and irregular weft, and resistance to creasing.
The fabric has the appearance of antique linen or raw silk and is available only in its natural color, ecru.
In the coming months the fabric will be available in extremely limited quantities.
At the moment, Rubinacci have the opportunity of working with this fabulous fiber, exclusively for their costumers !!
We can only made one jacket, who will be the first ???
Thanks to Loro Piana that always provide to Rubinacci his best and unique materials.
Come on, let’s try it !
