Established in 1982.
Stone Island has created greater than 40,000 different garments. The primary Stone Island jackets were cut from extremely durable truck tarpaulin that had been washed for hours with pumice stones as a way to soften it. This new fabric was named Tela Stella, and set the tone for Stone Island’s industry-leading research and development, which has seen the introduction of unique materials and fabrications including the Ice Jacket, which changes colour in response to temperature variation; the Raso Gommato fabric, a cotton-satin with a durable polyurethane coating; the Silver Jacket, which is cut from 100% stainless steel bonded to a fabric base; the NOC 1 rubber hood that is made in a vacuum mould; and jackets incorporating Kevlar, a material more commonly found in body armour.
