‘I PEZZI DIPINTI’ is devoted to the design and production of the finest cashmere knitwear, cashmere and linen textiles and bespoke furs. The core approach of the I Pezzi Dipinti brand is to create the highest quality product intended for use over the long haul. Founded by Cathryn Collins in 1988, this approach is fulfilled by working with the most talented crafts people and factories in South Asia and India respectively. Through these partnerships, ‘I PEZZI DIPINTI’ produces exquisitely high quality hand loomed cashmere shawls and textiles, cashmere knitwear and bespoke furs.
Collins has gained an extensive knowledge of the craftsmanship involved in creating these products, having worked with the same artisans over the decades to develop her enduring designs. To execute these unique and timeless designs, these artisans use the most impeccable materials produced, often completely by hand, to the most exacting standards.
Underlying the production is the goal of supporting, fortifying and expanding the existence of artisanal traditions, which in today’s landscape are seriously threatened. In working with these artisans ‘I PEZZI DIPINTI’ is able to provide chic, sublime, utilitarian pieces built to last. Each piece is conceived and produced to become the client’s most reliable and rewarding wardrobe essential.
One can shop the I PEZZI DIPINTI collection in the atelier in Soho, or order pieces by phone or email. IPD also hosts biannual trunk shows in New York, London and Jackson Hole, WY. A carefully curated, versatile selection of I PEZZI DIPINTI textiles is available in the online shop.
