Antocostasette Milano was born to revisit the iconic fabric of the Scottish tradition, tartan, in a rock style. Tartan identifies the typical checked weave used to make the kilt, an identifying sign since the 17th century of the Scottish clans that populated the Highlands, who used this piece of cloth wrapped around the waist even in battles or while hunting.
The supply chain is well structured and concentrated only in Italy except for the iconic fabrics obviously sourced in Scotland. The raw material sourcing is focused only on natural yarns: cotton, silk and wool. The manufatures is based in Milano area and the packaging is composed by recyled materials (wrap papers, cardboards and boxes).
The brand takes care about circular economy using piece of fabrics discarded from other industries.
