Beste was founded in Prato, Tuscany, in 1992 by then 28-year old textile technician Giovanni Santi. Using techniques traditionally reserved for crafting exclusive wool and cashmere weaves, the company set out to innovate the production of high-quality cotton fabrics. Now based in the small town of Cantagallo, just outside Prato, Beste is a vertically organised manufacturer and developer designing both woven fabrics and final garments. The company specialises in elaborate dyeing and finishing techniques, such as rope dyeing, piece dyeing and natural-fibre technical weaves, and supplies three fabrics for ARKET outerwear.
