Gentleman seeking style need look no further than Colette’s Scottish Tartan hat. A gracious, witty, and humble lady Colette della Vedova works in Cressa; a village of white-washed chalets in the verdant pastures of Piedmont.
While visiting we saw examples of yesteryear’s rain warriors and those in progress; and in each case we were drawn to their exquisite craftsmanship.
So much today is made by machine, somewhat of a sad trend particularly when you come face to face with a Colette original that simply pulls at the heart strings!
All items stamped CDV are a guarantee of the high quality synonymous with Made-in-Italy, and this debonair Scottish Tartan hat is no exception!
About the Designer
Nanni and Colette begin their adventure at the end of the 1970s in Cressa, a small village in the northern region of Piedmont situated near Lago Maggiore, the home of the handmade umbrella. Influenced and encouraged by a very dear friend who used to commission umbrellas in Italy on behalf of French luxury brands, Colette and her beloved spouse Nanni take on, with the greatest of ease, a very old craft championed by artisans before them.
To this day, CDV not only makes umbrellas strictly by hand, but they respect time honoured methods too. Moreover, the company is a staunch user of only the best materials like bamboo, valuable woods, and various kinds of skins and leather.
Handles made out of these natural materials are then matched in most unusual ways with panels of pure cotton, silk, lace, velvet, and also to printed polyester and jacquard fabrics, these too made exclusively in Italy.
