For the past six generations, Loro Piana has been the vanguard of
developing the potential of Super 120's wool. At Loro Piana technology
and tradition work hand in hand to ensure superior quality. Loro Piana
was founded on the principle to always strive to give their customer
a flawless finished product that is nothing less than excellent.
Loro Piana is the single largest user of Super 120's wool, purchasing
up to forty percent of the total annual output. The wool comes from
the very best lots of Australian merino wool, which is woven into yarn
of exceptional fineness, tenacity, and strength. As a matter of fact,
the yarn used is so fine, that one pound of it can be stretched out
for 17 miles. Due to this fine raw material, Super 120's can provide
the customer with softness and comfort that no other wool can.
Loro Piana is the premier international textile conglomerate with
its corporate headquarters in Italy. Loro Piana currently has plants
operating around on the world because of their high standard levels
and strict quality control measures. Loro Piana has always been on
the cutting edge of technology; Franco Loro Piana initiated the concept
of fine and lightweight fabric for the clergy, which later became known
as Tasmanian, which revolutionized the Ready-to-Wear industry. Even
though the finishing techniques are kept highly guarded, the finished
product is renowned for its smoothness and wonderful drapability. Loro
Piana is the
hallmark of sophisticated weaving and finishing technology available.
