This is where a wealth of threads meet a semi-transparent structure, in which the voluminous threads are trimmed and refinished by hand. KOHINOOR is dyed in the particularly slow maltinto process that allows the colour to distribute itself over the fabric organically, creating a shadow effect that appears natural. An Airo finish lends the fabric a particularly elegant and soft drape. It should be no surprise, then, that KOHINOOR was named after one of the world’s largest diamonds. The Mountain of Light is said to be 5,000 years old and was part of the Peacock Throne in Delhi. After changing hands between various factions in Persia and Punjab, it was gifted to the British Empire in 1849 and is still part of the British Crown Jewels today. The 108-carat diamond was on display at the Great Exhibition in a birdcage that had no doors.
