hems: hand rolled vs machine finishing
All of the digitally printed silk scarves are finished in Roberto’s studio in the Provincia di Como. Here the workers have a fixed salary and normal working hours. Regular audits controll the working situation.
We believe in machine rolling the hems of the scarves. As Roberto justly says: “il mercato non paga” which means that nobody pays fair wages for hand rolled hems, neither in Italy nor in India nor in Switzerland.
