The Fundamentals of Giro Inglese
Created in the late 19th Century in Lancashire, England, Giro Inglese is a highly specialized weave known and celebrated for its rich one-of-a-kind texture and exceptional breathability.
True to its original intent, Giro Inglese originally took off as fabric for tennis shirts, as the open-weave fabric resembled a fine mesh, allowing air to freely move around while still maintaining a soft feel.
Traditional Craftsmanship —Woven with a uniquely Italian technique that creates a deep, almost 3D structure.
How Giro Inglese is Made
To achieve Giro Inglese’s distinctive texture, the fabric is woven on specialized slow-speed looms. Our Giro Inglese jackets are crafted by Italy's Ferla mill, one of the last remaining mills capable of producing this incredible fabric.
The result is a supple, airy fabric with a unique, open texture and rich drape. This plain weave offers an almost 3D effect that is loosely woven for a textured, sturdy finish that remains lightweight and breathable.
