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.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
