A brief on Attica’s product range

Most of Attica’s products are handcrafted using the finest natural fibers. The subtle variations in color, texture and finish are the signature of the human hand.

Production is a lengthy process rooted in the crafts-based traditions of hand spinning, dying, weaving, wood block printing and embroidery, each with its own regional specialty and character.

We use both vegetable dyes and commercial dyes with the goal of minimizing our impact on the environment while striving for the best color properties. Products where vegetable or natural dyes are used may result in gradual fading which is mostly considered as an enhancement to the overall look and feel of the product.

Cotton is strong when wet and caring for cotton used in all of Attica’s products is very simple. Also the more you wash it, the softer and more absorbent it becomes. Hand-woven cotton fabric has the added value of allowing more air penetration and is therefore cooler, softer, more absorbent and breathes better than highly uniform, compacted machine made cotton fabric. This added breathability means you will stay cooler in the summer and warmer in winter. Hand-woven cotton fabric also has a textural beauty and visible character which is not present in many machine made fabrics.
