Thanks for the link but it doesnt say they produce themself.
They state "Our products are manufactured in the finest qualities by skilled specialists in the North of Italy".
As you're probably well aware, there are plenty of manufacters in North of Italy.
Nothing wrong with it, I was just curious if they really make the stuff themself.
It's quite difficult to decide when someone makes stuff themselves or not. Is it when you slap your design and logo on an OEM product? Is it when you customise an OEM product? Is it when you design the garment from scratch? Or do you have to own the factory?
Rapha, for example (AFAIK from conversations with people in the industry) contracts manufacturing, like most textiles companies.
