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.

Made using wool that has been carded and spun, the fabrics – weighing no less than 380g/m2 – are the result of extensive research to replicate the warp and weft described in the specifications of ancient spinning mills. As tradition dictates, the fabrics are mainly black and grey in colour. All the collars are made using horsehair fabric as internal reinforcement to make them stiff and are sewn using a technique that ensures they are firm, flexible and crushproof. The silver neck clasps – the hooks that fasten on the chest – and the collar in silk, faux  astrakhan or velvet, add the finishing touches to the garment.

SIZE GUIDE

The Tabarro does not come in different sizes since it is made from a full circle of cloth. Each model has specific dimensions depending on its intended use: the longer the Tabarro the more elegant it is, a reflection of how, in times past, a long Tabarro denoted the wealth and status of the wearer.
