19 Andrea's 47

Andrea's 1947 (or sometimes stylized as 19Andrea's47) is one of the best scarf makers in Italy, and indeed the world. Based out of Prato, near Florence, in the Italian region of Tuscany, this family-run business has been making some of the world's finest textile goods for over half a century. 

What sets Andrea's 1947 apart from their competition, besides the use of the finest materials available, is that they use ancient shuttle looms that need to be hand-guided by skilled craftsmen. This process is both labour intensive, slow and expensive, but the results speak for themselves.
