Interview with Umberto Palloto – Fratelli Italia di Delfino
Your company forms part of the Marzotto group, specifically you make the fabrics.
“Yes, the company was formed in 1903 and for a full century we have been creating two collections a year in unusual fabrics of the highest quality, destined for menswear.”
Could you give us some examples of the materials you produce?
“We make fabric for clothes and jackets using natural fibres such as pure wool, precious fabrics such as silk, cashmere, alpaca, mohair. Viscose and nylon are absolutely forbidden.”
Luxury brands use you, I imagine you provide them with an exclusive service.
“We are historic suppliers for Gucci, Canalis, Brioni, Fendi, in their cases we offer exclusivity. We take an idea already present in the sample and develop it according to the needs of these clients.”
