RAW Diamond capsule was born with the ambition of giving back to garments their original value, restoring the full lifecycle of the knits.
In a marketing-oriented industry, it is common to think that the softest the cashmere - the higher the quality of the fiber. Truly, when treating a knit to make it softer, washing it, dyeing it, makes the fiber more stressed and its life shorten, while also wasting water and losing polluting substances in the ocean.
"TALES OF RAW",
A project by Equipage Creative Studio
for Raw Diamond
The RAW Diamond is a limited-edition capsule composed by only ten knits: they are rough, naturally dyed, they preserve their original energy, caged into their fibres. These knits free their softness over time, giving the sensation of wearing something alive.

Continuing a story which started last season, FW22 the RAW Diamond Campaign was shot on real people. Three acrobats are captured in their natural element, making evolutions and interacting between them and with the sweaters.
The RAW Diamond is a limited capsule which wants to exalt the naturalness of the fibers. The acrobats are a methaphor of the main pillars of this collection: Nature, Body, Authenticity, Sensoriality and Sensuality. Not a simple sustainable project but something which goes back to the origins of cashmere, a re-evaluation of knitting techniques and a research towards exalting the characteristics of this fiber.
RAW KNITWEAR
All the garments from our Raw Colletion are made from 100% cashmere or raw cotton, high-quality yarns which are not prewashed in order to maintain their original, natural appearance. Just like a raw diamond, the core part of the fiber is hidden from the visible eye, but will reveal all its softness wash after wash. This makes each Ballantyne sweater unique and timeless, proof that the fiber is genuine, raw.
