H.O.P.E. capsule collection born from the will of the Vitale Barberis Canonico wool mill, Cappellificio Biellese 1935 and Mirantico backpacks to create a collection that was sustainable from raw material to manufacturing.

For over 350 years, Vitale Barberis Canonico has been committed to respecting the environment and people in creating the best fabrics. This deep-rooted awareness gives birth to H.O.P.E., acronym of How to Optimise People and Environment. H.O.P.E is a message of optimism for the future that materializes in sustainable fabrics like the moretta wool - which is characterized by the natural dark nuances of the fleece - or like the Red Eri silk in which the harvest of the fiber occurs only when the butterfly leaves the chrysalis to feed on the nectar of the flowers and reproduce.

Mirantico backpacks and Cappellificio Biellese 1935 turned H.O.P.E fabrics into Made in Italy handcrafted backpacks and hats, thus giving people the opportunity to wear garments that carry with them a message of optimism and sustainability. Furthermore, the production will be only "made to measure", so will be produced effectively what is requested by customers, avoiding waste of fabric and unsold stock.
