Nomadissem’s process is clear as day – from the first stage to the final garment, from fabric composition to our worker conditions, we’re committed to leading by example and effecting radical change in conventional fashion cycles.
Nomadissem does things properly, and what’s on show is the result of rigorous research and the highest standards. Natural materials; immaculate craftsmanship; fair wages and minimum environmental impact; all of the utmost importance to us.
As a Nomadissem piece is built to last a lifetime, we have carefully selected our suppliers in order to guarantee excellency in materials and craftsmanship.
All our garments are developed and manufactured in the North of Italy in artisanal studios that have a track-record in true Made in Italy excellency and guarantee the highest standards in terms of responsible business practices.
Suiting - Treviso, Italy
Nomadissem suiting is made in a female-founded and run atelier in the province of Treviso, in northern Italy. The atelier is well-recognised in the industry for its impeccable take on Italian tailoring and attention to detail. Every suit is made and finished by hand and is a true representation of Made in Italy excellency.
Dresses, tops & pants - Milan, Italy
Our atelier for dresses, tops and pants is located in the Tortona/Navigli area in the center of Milan, Italy. The family-run company was founded in the 1970's. The atelier is not only a leader in the couture technique of double-face but is also well known for its intrinsic knowledge of working with natural and precious fabrics such as wool, cashmere and silk. The production process follows traditional techniques with fabrics still cut by hand and garments finished by meticulous handiwork.
Shirting - Bologna, Italy
Impeccable shirting is one of the cornerstones of Nomadissem. That's why we collaborate with a shirtmaker near Bolonga, Italy that has a track record of 50 years in perfecting the art of shirt making. The atelier has a strong focus on craftsmanship and still uses the traditional and sartorial set-in method. The sleeves are set in by hand and details such as the buttons are sewn by hand as well.
Outerwear - Florence, Italy
Nomadissem has a strong focus on outerwear as its an essential part of any woman that's constantly on the go. That's why we collaborate with an outerwear maker near Florence, Italy, that has a great expertise in the production of luxury outerwear using Loro Piana fabrics. Moreover, with a strong focus on sustainability and being a carbon neutral company, makes it the perfect partner for Nomadissem.
Knitwear - Vicenza, Italy
Another cornerstone of Nomadissem is our knitwear that is made 100% in Italy using cashmere and wool from Loro Piana. The female-founded and run atelier is located in the area of Vicenza in northern Italy, where small production batches are produced either in house or within a 10 km radius from the atelier.
With the same care as we have selected our garment manufacturers, we have chosen our fabric suppliers. We work only with distinguished and certified suppliers from Italy, Switzerland, France, the UK and Japan that demonstrate a commitment to sustainable and responsible manufacturing practices.
We are happy to introduce below some of our main fabric suppliers.
Based in northern Italy, Loro Piana's textile division produces superlative textiles using the world's finest, rarest raw materials. The pursuit of excellence has been its mission for six generations.
Loro Piana has always aimed to guarantee its customers uncompromising quality. The company is well aware of the lifestyles of its customers of reference and fully understands their needs and requirements, including the pleasure of counting on the highest quality in an extremely refined style. Loro Piana's incessant research has led to the Sports Fabrics line: new generations of fabrics in which the exceptional qualities of natural fibres are emphasised and enhanced by exclusive technical solutions to achieve maximum performance. Loro Piana combines in a single product the finest raw materials in the world and the most advanced technology for increased lightness, improved thermal insulation and utmost comfort. The result is an uncompromising synthesis of style and functionality.
Loro Piana Sport Fabrics are the ideal solution for clothes designed for work, travel, leisure and active sports. Refined, versatile and durable, these high-performance fabrics were designed to be used intensely and they preserve over time the elegance and quality of the garments.
In its collections, Nomadissem uses Loro Piana Sport Fabrics in combination with Loro Piana's Green Strom System as well as Clima System.
Green Storm System - This eco-sustainable treatment protects against external agents, ensuring absolute comfort while fully respecting the environment. The bio-based membrane is the greenest available on the market and comes from renewable plant resources. Green Storm System is complemented by the exclusive Rain System PFC Free treatment that is free of harmful substances for the environment.
Clima System - Loro Piana's pursuit of excellence has led to the creation of Clima System, the innovative system that provides extraordinary and unprecedented thermal comfort. The finest fibres meet the world's thinnest material: graphene. When this material comes in contact with the body, it absorbs its natural tea and redistributes it throughout the garment, creating the ideal temperature in just five minutes.

Since 1918, Alumo's ideas and products have been taking shape in the peaceful seclusion of the Swiss mountains of the Appenzell region. Alumo's high-grade specialisation and cultivation of the art of weaving have turned them into a unique producer of both robust and delicate cotton fabrics in first-class quality. With Swiss values and local resources, Alumo pursues its mission to supply the best shirtmakers.
To achieve the highest quality, the entire production is done in-house in Appenzell. Traditional and passed-down techniques of weaving together with the blend of the yarn, are the cornerstones of Alumo's unique quality. With an incomparably soft and natural finish, using clear mountain spring water, fabrics are finished to Alumo quality. The entire production process corresponds to the world’s strictest environmental and sustainability standards.
Alumo's deep roots in the cultural characteristics of Switzerland have allowed them to outlive the movement to mass production. Just like a crystal in the globalised business world – steadfast and enduring.
