Our Collection

Large scale manufacturing of products designed as one-of-a-kind pieces. Beste gave itself this mission with the intent to cultivate a sort of middle ground between the vast, hyper-serialized textile industry and the small realm of artisanal fabric that does not have the ability or intent for mass reproduction. The entire industrial complex of the company, with a textile production process that starts from greige design and goes well beyond preparation, dyeing and finishing, expresses a knowledge of product quality that combines the purely esthetic with production reliability, sustainability of the production process and client satisfaction, in the short and long term.

Beste Collection

Authenticity is the trait the ties together, like a long weft yarn, the decades of Beste collections. Other adjectives, which perhaps are more appropriate in a seasonal context, would not stand up to the test of time. With a relatively pronounced focus on natural fibers, starting with cotton fibers, the proposals of Beste’s mainline have always stood out for their compact structure, their full hand and their cleanness that connotes both quality yarn as well as a finishing process that takes more often days than hours. Over time, the addition of processes such as bonding, the frequent use of waterproof and breathable membranes, and the choice to free ourselves from chemical processes and compounds with an increased impact on the environment express an integral vision both of the product and the client.

Beste SezioneAurea

The name, Sezione Aurea, (Golden Ratio in English) returns to the classical canons and to a sense of harmony and balance. A name which declares its firm desire to cultivate a product capable of expressing the excellence of the Italian textile tradition and to therefore capture the most demanding and sophisticated section of the market. It is an ambitious objective, which Beste has been able to reach through its synthetic collection and a concise profile. In a summarised collection of never-redundant noble-fibres of initially sixty to seventy items, to which there have been additions along the way: from silk to Japanese paper, from mohair to exclusive sea-island cotton and from complex structures, double-sided, or laminated, with aesthetics which have at last salvaged the Italian, and in particular Prato’s capacity to exalt supporting textiles. Sezione Aurea is a microcosm of excellence which reflects the know how that Beste has established over the span of twenty years. But the designer, Piergiovanni Donatucci’s authentic expression is also echoed. He affixes his signature onto each creation and regularly presents the collection to clients, guiding each one into the field of woven culture, refinement and also an artisanal approach which assumes industrial systems and organisation.


Behind Pontelambro is a very long and conventional history, based on yarn-dyeing and an almost infinite series of variations on stripes and checks. Today, however Pontelambro has changed and expanded. It is an approach rather than just a product in the traditional sense and a way to offer the shirt “as a turnkey solution”, beginning by designing the material and ending with the direct warehouse delivery. On request of the clients, delivery is made directly in-store, a norm for the leading Italian and International fashion houses. Truth be told, Pontelambro is also a different way of understanding shirts, with a repertoire of materials dominated by solid colours . Instead of concentrating on the development of prints, the research preferred to expand on the selection of yarns (up to the highly esteemed Sea-island or Giza cottons), textile structures and above all finishing procedures. Perhaps it is on this very front that the collection has developed its most peculiar strengths, introducing a range of processes largely unknown in the sector or otherwise reserved for other fields. They are processes which have normally been carried out on bolts with an unusual touch and results. However, in many cases these processes are proposed as finished garment treatments.
