The cenciaiolo represents the history of Prato, linked to the economic revival of the local system. Making the rag is a tiring job, sitting all day in uncomfortable positions (it was said "to put on the pillow") but that even today, for the few remaining, is of great satisfaction also for the reuse of what would be thrown. An act of love for the planet and an activity of great value.

Re-Cashmere is born from the spinning of residual yarns of pre-consumer production. Not entirely used Cashmere yarns are reworked after being divided by color. The result is a very soft yarn that will have unique nuances, because unique will always be the choice of colors that will compose the mix.
