“Creativity is combining existing elements through new connections that are useful.” Henri Poincarè
Our vision of fashion begins with people. Fashion is communication; it’s the expression of the spirit of the times, and an alchemy created by tapping into kindred and interconnected worlds such as art, music, and architecture.
Behind every RICCIARINI fabric is an original creative process. It’s borne of our ability to decipher and predict trends, imagining ties that reinterpret fabric of the past and present.
It’s an exploratory pursuit that brings innovation to the industrial process and endows the fabric with unique aesthetic and functional characteristics.
Therefore, each innovation that we introduce isn’t simply an exercise in style. We develop and give shape to success stories, partnering with stylists and designers in the creation of bestseller, unique, and high-performance collections.
Our style is the expression of a precise and coherent vision in which ethics and aesthetics coincide. It is “style” in the authentic sense of the word; that is, it’s tied to our way of positioning ourselves, and is much more than the single parts that make up the whole. Fluid and timeless, it’s the natural expression of a sustainable lifestyle.
We believe that fashion can concretely contribute to the act of renewal, aligning itself with the real needs of people while respecting the social fabric and the environment. We’re working towards a fashion industry made by people for people: a business model that’s tuned to the needs of the worker in harmony with the environment and region.
We’ve always been oriented towards technical efficiency, translating ideas into productive processes that create synergy and original connections. Our fabrics respond to the market’s timing and to the needs of fashion houses. This is where the contemporary nature of our innovation is born, in our ability to translate the concept of each fabric into reality.
We nurture the creative concepts of our clients with a pragmatic approach that accompanies the artistic direction in support of innovation.
We aim for an authentic relationship with our partners to better understand the needs of the market, and to combine creativity and innovation with the goal of an ever-greater environmental and social sustainability.
We strive to be the global point of reference for all businesses seeking a textile brand that can concretely contribute to their success.
We put our partnership with our clients at the center of our work, creating innovative fabrics and guaranteeing excellent service.
We use “we”, not “I”. We believe in sincere teamwork, aware that the success of one is a result of the collective.
We encourage honest and critical discussion as a fundamental step on a constructive and successful journey.
