Claudio Cutuli knows a thing or two about scarves, since his family has been weaving and dyeing them since 1838.
In full respect of this heritage, Cutuli is building the business by maintaining production entirely in Italy, in the Umbria region, and growing his own plants and crops to make natural fabric dyes for a veritable botanical feast. Red onion from Tropea; woad, a flowering plant that yields a blue dye; a yellow broom called Ginestrella dei Carbonai; pomegranate rind; poppy flower; blueberry; licorice from the Southern region of Calabria, and juniper are just a few of the ingredients Cutuli skillfully uses in his imaginative designs, working with the softest fabrics, including textiles made with nettle or broom yarns, cashmere and silk. Reptile inserts, Tibetan goat fur, mink and ermine further enrich the pieces.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
