Many people believe that only fabulous hosiery can be made in Italy and they’d be right to a degree. However, fabulous hosiery might be manufactured in Italy, but the innovation can easily come from elsewhere. Cecilia de Rafael is a Spanish company, based just outside Barcelona, who have their legwear made in Italy. Spanish design and innovation but Italian manufacture and know-how. This might well be the reason that Cecilia de Rafael is now renowned for producing luxurious legwear.
This company is a long-established, family-run organisation and the staff are seen very much as a part of that family. They have high standards, and the production teams are always on the go, no matter where in the world they might be.
A number of the products that Cecilia de Rafael have designed are now environmentally friendly as well as being highly fashionable and comfortable to wear. Only the best materials and yarns go into their manufacture, and the quality of their legwear speaks for itself. Like many of us, they are concerned about the planet and want to be as eco-friendly as possible.
Some of their best-sellers are listed below, but their range of hosiery is far greater than this. Take a peek at a small selection of their beautiful tights, hold-ups and stockings.

If sheer tights is your thing, CdR is where it’s at!! I’ve tried 1 or 2 CdR in the past, but being so sheer means that they will run at some point! If you can live with that (and the associated cost), then CdR is one of the best!
