Kiton first concentrated its efforts on the shirt and tie product lines. Nowadays, Kiton also designs denim, knitwear and footwear. Every single piece is handmade in the artisan workshop composed of forty master tailors. It takes up to twenty- five hours to create a Kiton suit, each garment individually cut and meticulously hand-stitched to create flexible seams that enable the wearer to experience ease and comfort in every movement. Kiton’s designs are characterised by the bold and sometimes daring choices for fabrics in rich colours and textures.
