We are passionate about making quality, long-lasting, clothing and make it in an ethical and environmentally responsible way.
We started with the finest socks, handcrafted in а small family-run atelier in the Lombardy region of Northern ltaly. The best natural materials and artisanal handmade quality combine to create а collection of the warmest and cosiest socks available.
We use only natural materials including alpaca wool, organic cotton, biological hemp and natural linen. Not to use any synthetic components was a choice and we believe that it is better for your health and for the environment. We rather would wear socks that are comfortable, breathable, anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, naturally flame resistant and suitable for everyone than sacrifice those qualities for making products that are cheaper to produce.
That's why we are paying close attention to the quality of the raw materials used, low harmfulness of the dyes and the limitation and recyclability of packaging, minimising waste.
The original idea was conceived by Corrado Cervati (he is also a mastermind behind adding cotton and hemp to our wool socks to make them more durable but without any synthetic). It is based on a 10 in 1 concept or simply put, having 1 garment that can be used in 10 ways is better than having 10 different ones that take up more space, cost more and will produce more waste. So just one item to enhance any outfit. There are obviously more ways how to use Pelerine and you can get really creative here.
The Pelerine is made in Italy from 100% sheep wool with mother of pearl buttons and available in many colours.
