The "ITALIA" Range
We are proud to have teamed up with two of Italy's prominent and best known Clerical Tailors in order to bring you a comprehensive (and constantly being expanded) range of the highest quality, Italian made garments and accessories. Made by artisans and from the finest materials and threads including fine Silks and Moires, these garments are truly the finest you will find the world over.
All Italia Range goods are made to order and as such can carry a small leadtime for delivery. More complicated and bespoke items such as Cassocks, Cloaks and such can take longer so please do enquire before placing any order or planning for that required date. Please note that Italia Range items are non-returnable due to their made to measure/order status (unless faulty in their manufacture)
In textiles, a moire is a fabric with a wavy (watered) appearance produced mainly from silk, but also wool, cotton and rayon. The watered appearance is usually created by the finishing technique called calendering. Moire effects are also achieved by certain weaves, such as varying the tension in the warp and weft of the weave, or by running the fabric through engraved copper rollers. Silk treated in this way is sometimes called watered silk.
