Ermenegildo Zegna’s Style Report

Abstract:
Some of our fabric has an unsurpassed resistance to creasing, wrinkling and staining. Called Micronsphere this 100% wool cloth has been enhanced with a finishing technique derived from studying lotus flower leaves, themselves completely resistant to stains. Using nanotechnology, we fill uneven or rough surfaces in the cloth, thus preventing penetration so that foreign particles almost float on the surface and slide off with a wet cloth or a splash of water.
