Il Borgo Cashmere
The Il Borgo Cashmere company was founded in 1949 and has continued for three of the Fredducci family generations. Having put down its roots in the Mugello territory, Il Borgo makes its artisanship and impeccable attention to detail the founding DNA of its knitwear products made of cashmere.
We spoke about it with Elia Fredducci, son of Franco, the owner, who together with his brother Matteo, has always breathed and worked in the family company: «We are accustomed to producing for the most famous brands of international fashion but in 2014 we decided to launch our own “Il Borgo” brand»
WHAT CHARACTERIZES YOUR PRODUCTS?
«Our garments and our articles give a sense to the meaning “handmade”, in the true sense of the word. A type of “handmade” that is cared for by specialized staff who have always worked with us. We propose elegant cashmere lines for men, women and children as well as a wide range of fine home accessories and items such as throws and blankets».
SINCE IT IS AN ANCIENT AND DIFFICULT CRAFT, HOW CAN YOU GUARANTEE A FUTURE TURNOVER?
«We try to convey our expertise to internally create the resources.
In 2017, we organized a 900-hour in-house training course in collaboration with the Region of Tuscany. An experience open to all that we count on repeating in the future».
