ABOUT US


Wave of Modernity Scarf First Draft - R. Culturi

Artwork by Illustrators, Painters, and Artists from Around the World

Every piece in the R. Culturi collection is an original work created by an artist that we researched and selected. Our goal is to collaborate with individuals from as broad a range of countries as possible in order to provide a diverse view of art and creativity from around the world. Some of the artists you will find in our collection are classically trained painters, some are illustrators, and some are digital artists. Experience or cachet doesn't play a role in the selection process. We simply choose individuals whose work and style is distinctive, engaging, and alluring. Our philosophy is to celebrate the artist as much as their work and to give a voice to talented individuals who may not otherwise have an opportunity to showcase themselves on a global stage.


Bound by Culture Pocket Square Draft - R. Culturi

Exclusive, Curated Designs Inspired by Culture and Creativity

Creating a work of art for our collection is an iterative process lasting several months. We never interfere with an artist's creative vision but we do work closely on details such as color placement, proportions, and bordering to ensure that the end result is not only a beautiful artwork in it's own right, but also translates seamlessly as a wearable accessory. Every piece in our collection was created from the artist's heart and soul to represent its author rather than to look like what a textile accessory "should be".

R. Culturi Scarf Made in Italy

Made in Italy from Start to Finish

All of our scarves, pocket squares, and neckties are made in the Como region of Italy. We work with family-owned mills and factories to ensure that every accessory is created from start to finish by local craftsmen with decades of experience in fabric printing and textile production.

Fabric Selection - We use only hand-selected, high-quality fabrics specifically chosen to maximize the beauty and essence of each design. A warm, soft color palette may call for a gentle modal/silk mix whereas a brighter spectrum would work better with a classic 100% silk twill material.

Printing - We exhaustively sample each design before determining the best print type and setting to use. Our goal is to ensure exquisite print quality on both the front and back side of the accessory. The image must be true to the original design, colors must be vivid, and fine details can never be compromised.

Finishing - Every piece is hand-finished to create a truly luxurious product. This time-consuming, manual process ensures that edges and corners are skillfully rolled to achieve the ideal drape and fold while also preventing fraying.

The Perfect Size, Finishing, and Construction

No detail in any of our products is an accident. We select fabrics that amplify the beauty of each work of art and we size the accessory so that it wears in the best way possible. Our pocket squares will sit neatly in our pocket rather than bulge out. Our silk twill and satin scarves are sized slightly smaller in order to not "overflow" on your neck. Our chiffon scarves are sized larger to create more volume. Our heavier modal mix scarves are also slightly larger in order to drape beautifully and provide added warmth when needed. We even use a slightly thinner hand-rolled edge in order for the piece to flow and fold naturally rather than be bound by a heavy, rigid border.
