Your Favorite Luxury Textile Artisans You Didn't Even Know | Gabriella Wimmer Luxe | Scoop.it

Many of these clients are global luxury brands, who purchase high-end fabrics for their store interiors, a lucrative business for Hosoo. Indeed, the mill has woven speciality textiles for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Chanel.

Gabriella Wimmer's insight:

It is always so intriguing to read stories of this nature where industries grew up in certain areas and they continue to thrive. It is similar to Italy where the leather industry grew up in a specific area and therefore all leather products are co-located as well. Efficiencies. As for the textile area, it is great to see that the industry has diversified from kimonos to other specialties to allow another generation to continue the traditions.

The ‘Made In’ Dilemma: To Label, or Not to Label

The ‘Made In’ Dilemma: To Label, or Not to Label | Gabriella Wimmer Luxe | Scoop.it

Consumers care about the origin of their products, but luxury brands are all over the place when it comes to 'Made in' disclosures.


Via Andre Castaybert
Gabriella Wimmer's insight:

In reading this article, looking at the websites of brands is not enough. I visited the production facilities that are used by some of these brands and I know that their mass produced pieces are actually done in Eastern Europe where costs are low and then brought back to Italy for inspection and packaging to ensure they meet requirements to state "Made in Italy".

 

For our brand, Gabriella Wimmer, we are very clear and do not mince our words or meaning - we are entirely handcrafted in Italy from our leathers to our metalwork to the packaging. This was on purpose to ensure that our handbags were not misleading in terms of production areas.

The New Artisanal Approach to Menswear 'Couture'

The New Artisanal Approach to Menswear 'Couture' | Gabriella Wimmer Luxe | Scoop.it

“In one place we do the leather component, in another we do the cutting, in another we assemble those two products, in another we do a hand finish, and in another we do some of the technical finishes on the fabrics—so it’s a long process. When you see these products, you understand that there’s a soul behind [them].

Gabriella Wimmer's insight:

Couture and these new age terms suggesting couture are all based on the fundamental principles of crafting life in pieces that are otherwise common or without imagination.

How 'Luxury' Is Luxury Fashion?

How 'Luxury' Is Luxury Fashion? | Gabriella Wimmer Luxe | Scoop.it

By commercializing luxury, brands end up forgoing quality and design for cheaper production quotas. In a bid to lower production costs, some luxury brands even assemble the entire bag except for the handles in countries like China. The bag is then shipped to Italy to have the Italian-made handle attached, followed by the leather embossing of the “Made in Italy” stamp.

Gabriella Wimmer's insight:

This is never a question with Gabriella Wimmer Jewelry-Handbags. They are always handcrafted in Italy beginning to end - from leather and diamond selection to leather cutting and metal turning to stitching and inspection. www.GabriellaWimmer.com This is true luxury, true couture.
