Palermo is woven from natural wool and Tussar silk. Tussar is known for its distinctive gold lustre and rich, uneven texture - a result of the manufacturing process being entirely by hand. Each yarn of Tussar silk is drawn by hand and palm-rolled into threads, ready for weaving. Furthermore, no chemical processes are used in the creation of the silk yarn, meaning it retains a natural, glossy finish. The lustre of the silk improves over time as the fabric relaxes and softens with use.
Each individual item is hand woven by artisan makers using ancient techniques, passed down through the generations. These skills are honed over many years on a Jacquard or treadle handloom. Every craftsperson has a personal technique and rhythm, making each piece subtly different from the next.
