Accessories and menswear beautifully crafted by artisans in Italy with quality, durability, and sustainability in mind
Born out of a family workshop in Como, Italy in 2014, 40 Colori teams with 8 other artisans across Italy to showcase traditional craftsmanship. 40 Colori is driven by a mission of ethical quality. This means sourcing the best materials and working with most skilled local producers to ensure the highest quality pieces with the lowest environmental and human costs.
The cashmere used in their beanies and scarves is sourced from a renowned “lanificio Biellese” founded in 1667, which directly controls its supply chain and produces amazingly warm and soft cashmere. Then, the cashmere goes to Maglificio di Maurizio in the Reggio Emilia, known for quality knitwear, where Maurizio himself oversees the production of the pieces.
The result is an exceptionally high quality, timeless product that you can feel good about owning.
Why I chose it
For me, there are 3 key reasons: quality, customization, and versatility. Just on sight, you can tell this is an exceptional product, no questionable mass market “cashmere” here, and when you touch it, it has an amazing soft and lofty feel.
Also, each piece is custom made for us. We’re able to choose the color combinations from a vast array of choices, so the pieces are unique to orsden.com. Something you’d like to see for a future season? Send us a note.
Finally, I love the versatility of the 40 Colori pieces. Not only are they unisex, but the beanies are also reversible and can be worn either cuffed or slouchy for four looks in one. You’re going to wear these pieces again and again.
