Saks Fifth Avenue and Woolmark gave their second annual Fabric No. 1 awards to Dormeuil and Fratelli Tallia di Delfino this week. The two mills were selected from a group of 20 that had sent their top three fall collection fabrics to be judged by Saks GMM Tom Ott and a panel of made-to-measure experts. Saks also promoted the winners in its flagship store windows.
Dormeuil’s winning fabric is a pure long filament Super 150′s worsted wool woven in England. The winning fabric from Italy’s Fratelli Tallia di Delfino is a blend of fine pure new wool and cashmere.
