The historic Carlo Riva silk weaving mill produces shirting fabrics through the use of shuttle looms (dating back to 1940), now completely disappeared, but the only ones still able to create fabric cuts in 90 cm height with selvedge, sometimes spoken. This processing method allows to reduce the yarn tension compared to modern looms.
The final treatment of the fabric is also fundamental, which is left to rest at constant temperature and humidity (climate room) in order to replicate the microclimate of the Nile River region in Egypt called GIZA 45 from which the cotton comes. used by Carlo Riva. Linen, no less valuable than cotton, is instead grown in Western Europe, in Normandy, and is known to be the best in the world.
All this to make Carlo Riva fabrics unique in terms of comfort, evoking the softness of cashmere and the most precious silk. Fresh and natural fabrics, with exceptional properties and a unique hand (perception to the touch).
