Claudio Cutuli was born in Calabria into a family that boasts at least five generations of dyers and weavers. So well established is the Cutuli name in the fashion sector, it is found in top Italian, European and Asian boutiques. He is driven by an unbridled passion for his work, so much so that he consider himself bound, as if by an umbilical cord, to every aspect of the world of fashion. His shawls, wraps and scarves shun all that is mass-produced, not out of snobbery, but because they are created to last. The collection is founded on his personal creative vision, who favors fine fabrics like hemp, linen, bamboo, silk, wool and cashmere exclusively hand-woven on 30’s ancient family looms and dyed using carefully selected premium raw materials of plants, animal and mineral origin as Fraxinus excelsior, Hibiscus sabdariffa L., Rubia tinctorum L., Quercus petraea Liebl., Sambucus Nigra L., Coccus cacti L. Chamomilla recutita, Helianthus annuus, etc. using natural methods and the age-old mixtures used by Cutuli’s forefathers. For almost two hundred years, natural dyeing techniques have been the forte of the family’s artisan textile company and natural color, as Cutuli himself says, is synonymous with life, passion and joy, but above all it is the fundamental element thanks to which we can still dream. His collections are the product of meticulous research and sum up his experiences in their original creativity and ability to convey emotions, overcoming the fickle diktats of fashion and never losing the authentic influence of his Mediterranean roots.
