Brunella Gori provides its clients decades of experience in the production of high quality knitwear in every kind of fabric.
As a leading company in our industry, we carry the responsibility to select the best fabrics and yarns with less environmental impact and less polluting properties. This is why, we only cooperate with companies which show strong interest in sustainability and environment and have chosen a strong policy against the use of dangerous chemical substances in their manufacturing.
Our aim is to contribute in reducing the release of polluting agents into the air and in the environment and to continue ensuring more restrictive use and presence in the final product of dangerous chemical substances for humans and for the environment.
Our kneatwear are Mulesing-free. Mulesing is a method used by some sheep farmers to prevent them loosing sheep to flystrike. It's a cheaper way of preventing their sheep from being killed by infections caused by insects, but it is also cruel and traumatic for animals. Therefore it is the opposite of our values, based on the respect for animals, humans and environment, and we prefer nicer, even if more expensive, ways to keep sheep safe from illness. We think that the sheep’s well-being is worth a small extra-cost. When you’ll buy a Brunella Gori’s knitwear, you’ll know for sure that no inch of its yarn came from sheep treated with cruel methods.
Our recycled cashmere is made from surplus fibres from the manufacture of virgin cashmere yarn – a resource that would otherwise have been discarded. These waste fibers offer the same premium quality as conventional cashmere, but are available only in limited quantities. Our custom-made yarn is produced with a high-twist worsted core, to reduce pilling and guarantee stability and strength, and an outer layer of woollen-spun fibers, which lends it its signature softness.
Our organic cotton is the most skin-friendly textile, manufactured and certified to organic agricultural standards. The manufacturing is made following natural processes, without any artificial inputs. The fiber is made from original, not genetically modified plants, which have not been treated with any chemicals like washes, bleaches, colors or scents.
Our tencel is a modern, eco-friendly and sustainable fibre, more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. It is also hypoallergenic, because it reduces the formation of bacteria thanks to its humidity absorbing feature, leaving the skin dry. Since the very restricted growth of bacteria, Tencel is specifically indicated for those who suffer from allergies and eczema.
Merino Wool is considered the most functional fibre in nature, being a regenerative raw material. The wool from the sheep is harvested twice a year. Merino Wool does not irritate the skin because we select a very much thinner fibre than the standard one.
Our cashmere fineness lends the yarn softness, lightness and silkiness. Cashmere is the most noble raw material on earth. Once a year, when the weather is warm, the shepherds delicately remove the soft undercoat of the goats - with methods totally harmless for the animals and respectful for the environment.
