Lanificio F.LLI Cerruti
The House of Cerruti was born in 1881 in the Piedmont town of Biella, at the foot of the Alps and on the banks of the Cervo, a river of pure water to which the Italian draper owes the softness and finesse of its fabrics. Equally reputed for the impeccable drop of its productions and the high quality of its Australian wool, Lanificio F.lli Cerruti has developed a number of exceptional fabrics exclusively for De Fursac, such as the Super 130’s, the Super 150’s AAAAA and the Turbo 180. This combination of cutting edge technology and artisanal savoir-faire provides the cement to a long-term partnership, woven over the meetings between two companies with shared exacting standards.
This legendary Scottish fabric in carded wool – used to make hunting jackets in the 19th century – has long been dressing gentlemen farmers, British undergrads and even Sherlock Holmes. Robust and really very chic, tweed received the blessing of haute couture in 1950s, but has remained a timeless purveyor of winter jackets.
