FABRICS AND TECHNIQUES
The art of crafting Tabarros follows strict manufacturing rules that comply with the dictates of the ancient fabric composition, thereby enhancing the tailored beauty of a completely hand-made product.
Six metres of fabric are needed to make one long, full circle Tabarro. The Tabarros are cut two at a time, turning around a table, and then sewn together with a single seam down the back. In line with tradition, the fabric is left with raw-cut edges (as opposed to a cloak which has a hem). It has no hem, thanks to the broken twill weave which keeps the fibres more intertwined and intact, preventing the risk of fraying.
