Founded by Italian designer Massimo Osti in 1982 primarily based on an revolutionary new textile ‘Tela Stella’ which was made from navy truck tarpaulin which had been rigorously washed. The designer felt that the brand new fabric didn’t fit in with his original C.P. Company label and determined to type Stone Island. Ever since Stone Island has constructed itself upon the foundations of never-ending analysis, experimentation and function. The brand has grow to be a global leader in textiles with a exceptional historical past of specializing in floor treatment of fabrics and dyeing strategies. Now headed by Carlo Rivetti, the model continues to push the boundaries of practical sportswear with each and island stone center every season.
