During Salone del Mobile, Ermenegildo Zegna unveiled its new Pelle TessutaTM collection of Zegna Toyz, the collection consists of accessories, entertainment and home products featuring an exclusive new design inspired by one of the iconic Lanificio Ermenegildo Zegna suiting fabrics produced in 1968.
Blending weaving tradition with modern technology, Pelle TessutaTM is Zegna’s lightweight and highly versatile leather fabric that brings its textile expertise into the leather world. For the new chapter of its Zegna Toyz , Ermenegildo Zegna has interwoven extremely thin micro leather yarns to recreate a 1968 vintage herringbone pattern discovered within the Zegna Archive in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Ermenegildo Zegna’s entrance into the Ready-to-Wear business.
Zegna Toyz will be available in major Ermenegildo Zegna stores worldwide starting in November 2018. A small selection, including the mobile phone pouch and the ping-pong racket set, can be purchased at the Milan Global Store in via Montenapoleone throughout Salone del Mobile 2018 week.
During the event, Ermenegildo Zegna, in collaboration with Altai Gallery, also unveiled a unique handwoven rug as part of Salone del Mobile 2018. The tapestry, produced exclusively for Zegna by the internationally renowned gallery specialized in primitive textile art from nomadic cultures, is made at Atelier Altai from interwoven leather mignon and hemp using a hand loom. The exclusive handwoven rug produced by Altai will be exhibited at the Milan Global Store in Via Montenapoleone throughout Salone del Mobile 2018.
