Have been invited to visit this Pistoia’s beautiful reality from a French client I met in my husband restaurant . So funny to get in touch with a Pistoia’s factory through a foreign !Mr Jacques du Mulin is ELLEMME ‘s agent for France since more than 20 years so he knows very well this factory & its story that he wanted to share it with me❤️🔝
This is another #MADEINPISTOIA ‘s factory that produces entirely MADE IN ITALY ladies & men’s knitwears , so rare to find nowadays…When I was a teenager ( so, many years ago 😬 ) everything I bought was made in Italy 🇮🇹 : from shoes, to bags ,to clothes & knitwear of course. Since about two decades I have to check everytime I buy something to see where my shopping come from &bI am sorry to verify everytime that mostly it comes from Asian Countries.
I am still in love with Italian fashion style & I really believe in our “know how “, our innate taste for quality & the great experience of our family run small industry as EllEmme : opened in 1968 by Rodolfo Risaliti & now run by Federico , his son & a young staff as Cristina & Lisa .
They export almost everywhere in the world : not just in Europe but also in Canada, Japan , North Africa, Australia & Taiwan offering an entirely Made in Italy product that speaks Italian starting from the yarn to the finished sweater.
I had the privilege to have a guided tour of the factory & to see Federico Lisa & Cristina at work choosing colours & material for the new collection and so here are my photos to show how , again , a family business can be a successful enterprise even nowadays in Tuscany & in the outskirts of Pistoia, Agliana town.

Local is better not just for food but even for fashion , what do you think about it? do you agree?👍😉🛍🛍
