Born & Raised
Maison Kargani, founded in 2021, tells a story.
The story of a return to the sources of Italian craftsmanship, going back to the historical and geographical origin of the arts and crafts that make up its collections.
The fascinating details, the meeting of the skilled hands of master craftsmen, the composition of sublimated materials; all are subtly numbered.
It is in rarity that we feel privileged, and it is in this rarity that we express the exceptional character of our uniqueness. With comfort and elegance quality does not subsist in quantity, when our conscious presence reveals to us that the only way to be sustainable is to produce less.
From now on, Maison Kargani follows only its own path.
Maison Kargani brings values that perfectly characterize its country of origin, Switzerland. Among its values we find meticulousness, patience, transparency and finesse.
The Path of Artisan Manufacturing
Marche, in the middle of Italy, is known for its stunning landscapes, history, artistic heritage, and coast. Marche is the birthplace of the famous Italian handmade shoe tradition, where most of the shoe production happens in the south of the region. Only in Marche are the finest quality leather shoes designed, produced and then shipped all over the world. Shoemaking is a tough and complicated process that requires strong hands to pull the leather over the lasts and sew the leather. We selected the region of Marche to highlight our values, in this case the heritage of craft. Many artisans from this area are continuing the traditions they learned from their fathers and grandfathers. It is important for us to work closely with the artisans, to create a strong organic bond between us.
The Path of Artisan Manufacturing
Silk, or be oneself. A whirlwind of strength and delicacy. Increased sensitivity, unfailing resistance. Sometimes discreet, sometimes flamboyant but always noble at heart. Silk can become a field of artistic expression and exploration. We decided to look for the best silk twill possible, that is only found in one region: Como, located in Lombardy, Italy.
Como contains numerous works of art, churches, gardens, museums, theaters, parks and palaces. But most importantly, it is known as the City of Silk. It was in the year 1400 that Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, decided to plant mulberry trees around Como to feed the silk worms.
Since then, the love and passion for silk have ancient origins in Como. Maison Kargani proudly shares this technical and artistic heritage through the silk scarves that we produce in this region.
Heritage of Craft
Artisanal skills are a precious testimony passed by the old generation to the younger one.
This continuity is vital for our "Maison" and in our eyes, Italy has a central role in fashion, not only because of its history, but especially thanks to the preservation of its craftsmanship.
We met with the artisans and traced back the geographic birthplace of every single expertise, always working with the best craftsmen.
In our opinion, everything matters, from the craftsman to the used materials.
We can proudly claim to visit regularly, know personally and have weaved narrow relationships with every person in the production line of our products.
From the smallest accessory, to nobler materials as leathers up to the final garment and packaging, everything in our products is 100% Made in Italy.
Our mission is to sustain slow fashion. We aim to be the exception in the fashion industry.
If you can find it in thousands of pieces, you are no longer talking of real luxury. This is why we chose to manufacture our items in very limited quantity.
Each of our products is numbered.
Therefore, our customers have access to a proof of traceability and a personalized piece indicating the number of pieces produced to date.
