In the first of two dedicated bonus episodes, HandCut partners with the Albini Group in Bergamo, Italy; the shirting mill responsible for protecting and maintaining the Thomas Mason brand today, and for weaving all luxury Thomas Mason fabrics.
In this episode, Aleks takes a quick walk through the mill floor and sits down with Head of Communications, Gabriele Camozzi, and Marketing Director, Tim Neckebroeck. The trio discuss Thomas Mason’s relationship with Albini, explore the brand’s heritage and examine how Albini’s joint focus on innovation and sustainability feeds into Thomas Mason’s fabric collections today.
It’s always a privilege to visit a manufacturer, particularly one that’s family owned and run, and which employs over 1,400 people, so we hope you enjoy this brief look at one of Italy’s most forward-thinking heritage brands.
