The cultural heritage
A source of inspiration, a past that generates the future, the Ratti Archive, well known in the fashion world, is a pivotal element of product development. All the samples from the beginning of the company’s activities are kept in the Archive, starting with the legendary F1, the very first foulard designed by the founder in 1945. Within the men’s and women’s accessories, clothing and furnishings, the Archive boasts more than 600.000 fabrics, accompanied by their original sketches, paper patterns and samples. The fabrics are hung on open shelves, in accordance with a classification tree specially designed by Antonio Ratti to make it easy to search them.
The archive can be searched both physically and digitally.
