Founded by two lifelong friends who have worked with fine Italian manufacturers for more than 20 years. They decided to combine their love for design and substantial knowledge to create Linea Azzurro.Taking inspiration from the chic simplicity of Italian dressing, we offer an affordable 100% cashmere Collection.
'Our rigorous commitment to quality means that we source premium yarns to ensure we achieve very high standards of craftsmanship in the manufacturing of our garments.'
Timeless pieces for everyday luxury
Manufactured by an artisan factory in Italy, we are proud of the supply chain we use, as the process is traceable from the yan supplier to the Italian factory where the clothes are produced. Our yarn comes from Cashmere goats and is sourced from Mongolia, where the cold climate and lifestyle of the animals produce the longest and softest Cashmere. Each herder has between 100 and 200 goats & at night they are brought into farm enclosures where they are kept safe, but during the day they roam freely to graze. The traditional knowledge of the Mongolian herders yields some of the finest Cashmere in the world.
