Le Mondeur worked with one of the few remaining artisan producers of a historic wool cloth made in the Casentino Valley in Tuscany. Once used as blankets for animals and Franciscan friars’ cowls, the wool fabric — or Panno Casentino — became fashionable for use in coats in the 19th century, and maintains its made-in-Italy charm and elegance to this day.
It does not get more classic than this. Casentino wool is known for its iconic orange and green colors (remember Audrey Hepburn’s orange coat in Breakfast at Tiffany’s?). In a nod to tradition, they chose a slightly bolder orange accented with a forest green leather trim.
