Founded by a group of industrial entrepreneurs in the scenic Biella region of northern Italy, about 70 miles west of Milan, Tollegno 1900 is one of the last mills to spin its own yarn. It selects its fine and superfine wools from the best sustainable ranches in New Zealand and Australia—specifically Tasmania, where the merino for J.Crew’s sweaters comes from. The mill also produces its own electricity through hydro turbines and solar panels.
Tollegno 1900’s swatch and yarn archives, dating back to 1902, are major reference points for our designers—they found inspiration for our Ludlow dinner jacket, tuxedo jacket and pant there. Focused on the future, the mill has always embraced technology, highlighted in the three-ply wool used in our Ludlow Traveler suit, which doesn’t wrinkle or crease.
