THE ORIGIN OF SOLARO is “Made in England”, but also well-known Italian companies in the BIELLA textile industry offer an excellent product in this sense.

Today it is a niche fabric but also for this fabric, as for tweed, the original use differs considerably from its current use, in fact at the beginning of the 20th century this fabric was used in the red part to cover the helmets of English soldiers and in the beige part for their uniforms as defense from the powerful sun’s rays in the tropics.

Starting from the 1930s, the use of Solaro began to take hold in the tailors of the renowned London street, Savile Row. If at first it was mainly the English high society who showed it off, then it was particularly appreciated by the more recent masters of Italian style, such as the lawyer Gianni Agnelli, Marcello Mastroianni and lovers of elegance in general, finding in it the right compromise of sober and casual refinement.
