The Rita gown collection features fine satin stretch jersey sourced from a family-run mill just outside Como, Italy. Founded in the late 1800s, they became the first Italian silk mill to implement synthetic fibers for innovation and functionality in the mid 20th century. The company has remained at the forefront of developing premiere fabrics specifically for lingerie that have both a supple hand and drape, while also providing slimming support. The mill also has its own twisting factory that manufactures the synthetic threads for its fabric. Our Italian satin stretch jersey is made from eco-friendly, biodegradable resources and dyed responsibly. Without compromising quality, the makers of this Italian stretch satin jersey have evolved their processes to reflect and implement the most innovative techniques and materials for lingerie fabrics while maintaining a luxurious hand.
