Linen, precious as the future
“Linen is for the tailor what marble is for the sculptor, a noble material.” (Christian Dior)
“Even if I don’t know how to read and write, with these two tools I can create poetry.”
If you were living in the late 1700s, you might have heard these words spoken by a man of small stature, with hammer and chisel in hand in his workshop in Via delle Colonnette in Rome.
Antonio Canova would become a few years later the greatest sculptor of all time, succeeding in reviving the ideal of the classical beauty of ancient times in his works of art.
Our yarn, which takes his name, has been shaped and worked with the same artistry and genius, and allows the creation of captivating fabrics, with radiant and brilliant chromatic effects, true works of art.
Canova is the 100% linen yarn obtained through special printing technology which, using reactive dyes, gives fabrics for clothing and furnishings shine, depth and exceptional elegance.
