Exclusive and limited

An insistence on quality, adherence to a code of ethics and acceptance of responsibility for nature and the environment have always been key principles underlying the EDUARD DRESSLER corporate philosophy and guiding our actions.

Together with Lanificio Ermenegildo Zegna, a partnership has taken shape that seamlessly unites fashion and nature. The best example: a limited-edition jacket that combines elegance, comfort and environmental awareness in equal measure. A key piece for a timely fashion statement attesting to environmental stewardship on behalf of future generations.

EDUARD DRESSLER has tailored an exclusive, limited-edition jacket from “Bielmonte” fabric, whose wool comes from sheep living in the OASI ZEGNA nature reserve. This natural oasis extends across 100 square kilometres in western Italy and was declared a nature reserve as early as the 1930s. It is where Ermenegildo Zegna made it his mission to apply his environmental philosophy, including by manufacturing sustainable fabrics. His weaving mill combines responsibility for nature with highest-quality products. The woollen cloth that results is named for Mount Bielmonte, located in the nature reserve.

It comes as no surprise that there is no mass production in Oasi Zegna. This area set its environmental priorities at a time when the rest of the world was not yet aware of its ecological responsibilities. The sheep in Oasi Zegna are raised, grazed and shorn using natural methods. The wool is then woven into a fabric whose feel reflects the area’s flora and the weaving mill’s forward-looking mindset.
