Quinta Maso scarves are made in the north of Italy, not far from where our own last name originated. Our manufacturing partner was founded in the 1940’s, and has a long tradition of making scarves in exclusive materials and techniques. All of our product manufacturing takes place in the same geographical area, ensuring our pieces don’t travel during the production process.
Our manufacturing partner is certified with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard),Seri.Co (A quality trademark of Italian silk) and ZDHD (Roadmap to Zero Footprint Programe), and we’ve successfully agreed to reduce the use of plastic in our shipping materials by 80%.
We work exclusively with noble, circular fibres grown from the Earth, so that they can be reused, recycled and returned to the same place they came from. Our first collection is made from 100% Silk and 20% Silk / 80% Cotton blend. Our scarves are of the highest quality and every detail has been thought out to extend the life cycle of our pieces, if cared for properly.
We use a digital printing process, which is a much more environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional printing methods, using significantly less water, electricity, and surplus ink. Digital printing allows for small production runs, reducing waste and overproduction.
