About

FORTUNALE, THE WIND THAT CHANGES FASHION

Fortunale is an atmospheric perturbation of exceptional intensity, which takes its name from the term ‘fortune’ linked to the fate of many mariners who are forced to navigate in dangerous meteorological conditions. Tenacity, strength and the capacity to change the status quo, are the characteristics we want to inherit to change the fashion world for the best.

Fortunale aims at creating the best natural sweater in the world. Our products are entirely made of pure Italian natural wool, dyed with natural pigments free of chemical additives and produced in Italy by specialized artisans.

ONE SWEATER = ONE TREE

Fortunale believes in nature, and has decided to invest part of its profits in it. In a campaign launched in association with the historic Italian environmentalist movement Legambiente, for each crowd-funded sweater we will plant a tree. In addition, on each sweater we will create an exclusive embroidery detail with a unique numeric code for each Fortunale piece of clothing to have no equal or match.

100% ORGANIC ITALIAN WOOL 100% RESPECT

We respect and obtain pure organic wool, one of the best yarns in the world.

Animal-rearing is possible even in full compliance with their life conditions, safeguarding their free grazing through genuine fields that have not been treated with polluting substances or with dangerous antiparasites. Sheep that come from organic rearings receive care and attentions every single day, without being tortured or abused at all, giving us in return extremely high quality pure wool specially selected and chosen to make Fortunale garments, which permit human skin perspiration and maintains a constant body temperature.

100% COLOUR 100% NATURE

We watch at our past to colour our future.

Our dyeing processes recall natural ancient treatments, improved by in-depth studies and exclusive textile technologies. The result? Knitwear coloured with more than 200 natural ingredients, such as flowers, leaves, berries and roots, giving Fortunale jumpers their unique colours and shades. Nature blends with technology in our innovative chemical free dyeing process. That’s why it was awarded, a world exclusive, the prestigious Woolmark Approved Natural Coloration Technology. The best way to take care of nature and of our skin.

100% MADE IN ITALY 100% TRADITION

Italian knitwear means tradition and quality, worldwide acknowledged.

Fortunale collections are drawn by an Italian fashion designer team, boasting a solid experience in the field. They are developed in Italy by specialized laboratories which produce excellent garments and that take advantage of the most modern textile technologies and the skillful hands of the most expert tailors. Fortunale jumpers are genuine ‘made in Italy’ garments, meeting the last fashion trends and comfort needs of the most demanding customers. Each jumper is controlled and hand finished, before being ready for shipment. Quality as mission.

 CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR

BORN TO BE WORN, THOUGHT TO BE REUSED

Fortunale is entirely eco-friendly, and it takes its inspiration from the modern principles of circular economy. Materials transformed into objects often remain unused for most of their life. Fortunale sweaters are designed, from their origin, to be recycled at the end of their natural use.

Fortunale is a pure wool sweater, and this precious characteristic allows us to regenerate its fibers into new prime materials. The total absence of synthetic fibers enables us to recycle a sweater up to 80%. Even the packaging is entirely reusable.

Every sweater is shipped in a recycled cardboard box designed to be reused as a perfect container. We want you to reuse it, so we developed it with high-quality materials and an attractive design.

WE STRONGLY BELIEVE IN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

Fortunale strongly believes in scientific research connected to its territory. For this reason, it counts among its partners Plauto, a project initiated by Bari University, in Southern Italy, for the promotion of quality sheep wool sourced from Puglia.

THE DETAIL MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

Even our clothing labels are made of 100% natural fibers. The nature of our project is also in small details.

ITS NATURE IS ADAPTABLE

Fortunale is a highly adaptable sweater that can attract both the young and the female buyers.
