— About —
Every year when the cold winds return, Sartoria creates a luxurious collection of undergarments, cut in an old fashioned style, made with upcycled cashmere and merino wool sweaters. The Winter Collection.
The wool knit is fine and soft. Our pieces are designed in response to the unique character of the original sweater, embodying all of the wonderful attributes of this natural fibre. Wearing fine wool next to your skin is the very best, most sexy, warm and comfortable way to clothe yourself in the cooler seasons.
Upcycling is resourcefully responsible, creatively challenging and time intensive. Each piece we make is one of a kind.
We work and live in downtown Toronto. Our two seamstresses (with very beautiful coverstitch machines) work close enough to our studio that we are able to pick up and deliver pieces to them by bicycle.
This past summer, we created a collection of swimsuits made with new material, based on the beach styles of the 1920's. We look forward to the evolution of this summer collection.
We are proud to be one star within the constellation of Slow Fashion!
