for The Rake Magazine.

Rifugio is rather unique and that was clear on our visit to their factory in Naples, especially when we were shown the dyed alligator skin which costs a whopping ten pounds per centimetre.

The handwork amongst the skilled artisans on show was incredible, the toughest hides were crafted into the most beautiful of garments.
