    The family-owned Italian outerwear company Allegri is known for fabric innovations that are functional, waterproof, and lightweight yet luxurious. In fall 2010, for instance, Allegri pioneered Rain Cashmere, which is made by dipping cashmere thread in Teflon before weaving it into fabric so that the material remains soft, but is also water-repellent. Rain Cashmere marks Allegri’s 2,000th fabric introduction since the company’s launch in 1971 in the small town of Vinci outside Florence.
