When the economic crisis hit Italy in 2008, more than 50% of the textile industry in Biella, “The City of Wool,” folded. As mills closed one after another, the Sasso family united forces behind their family-run business, determined to weather the storm. Rather than skimping on quality to cut costs, they remained focused on producing top-of-the-line scarves and stoles as they had for decades.
Today MA.AL.BI is a reference point in the fashion industry and the maker behind many of the world’s top private labels. Utilizing only the finest yarns spun from the highest quality cashmere, wool, silk, linen and cotton, their collection of scarves and wraps comes in literally hundreds of colors and unique blends. “We start with the yarn and end with packaging and delivery of the final product,” notes Vittorio, a third-generation family member. “Every phase of production happens right here in Biella.”
Rossi & Rei’s bespoke scarves are so luxuriously soft you’ll immediately feel the difference, and by supporting genuine Italian-made products, you’ll be making one too.
