Aenēis is an ethical luxury brand characterized by exclusive prints with a focus on silk scarves. Designed in Paris and consciously made in Italy. Aenēis offers fashion and interior pieces such as silk scarves, twilly, bandanas and cushions with unique prints made of the finest silk. The products are designed and developed in the Parisian-based studio while the manufacture is run by a family-owned and managed company based in Como, Italy. Como is known as the “city of silk”, where the silk production began in the fifteenth century brought to Europe from the Far East. Today Como is still renowned for its excellent quality in silk manufacturing. Aenēis’ silk products are made out of a luxurious silk twill. The Twill is a type of textile weaving with a pattern of diagonal parallel ribs: this particular pattern gives a depth of color to the fabric and illuminates the prints. The perfectly crafted pieces are finished by the skilled and luxurious hand-rolled edging or hand made fringes.
Guided by a passion for travels, design, architecture and all the aspects of nature, Aenēis stands for iconic design and quality which combines style with functionality creating products that hold beauty while maintaining relevance and a style that will be loved by several generations. A classic luxury item is re-appropriated to become something entirely new; edgy, yet timeless.
Aenēis doesn’t believe in fast fashion trends and aims to create exclusive prints and products that last from a generation to another. With a commitment to Italian manufacturing, Aenēis takes pride in crafting its products with small family owned vendors. Keeping the production close to home and supporting small, traditional industries while creating local employment.
Aenēis’ mission is to design and offer fashion and interior timeless pieces characterized by exclusive prints while leading the way of slow fashion and ethically conscious manufacture.
