Premium essentials

Designed in Oslo | Crafted in Italy

THE AUTUMN FEELING

The cold, crisp mornings is a clear sign that a new season is around the corner. The beautiful autumn pallet is an inspiration for ALBA’s muted colours but it’s also meditative to be outside and enjoy fresh, long walks in the surrounding local forest. Soon the first snow will paint the forest white; cold and calmness will follow and many of us will spend more time inside. It’s time to feel comfortable and warm with the best cashmere quality.

Investing in timeless essentials of premium quality is a sustainable choice. ALBA’s conscious production in 100% cashmere is made by artisans who have learned their skills through generations. It is pure handcraft making every piece unique.

NO COMPROMISE

We use natural fibres in order to make the most comfortable garments. Our cashmere clothes are all made from 100% Italian cashmere of the highest quality. Cashmere is one of finest raw materials in the world, known for its exquisite softness, lightness and warmth. This luxurious fibre is collected from the cashmere goat, Capra hircus, in northern China and Mongolia.

In ALBA hosiery we use MicroModal, a soft material made from beech wood. It’s all natural and the finest cellulose fibre available. We also use the sustainable botanical fibre bamboo. These natural fibres make ALBA hosiery a super soft, comfortable and sustainable choice.

TIGHTS
