All Maria Pinto garments are made in the USA from fabrics created in the best Italian mills. Most pieces are made from a beautiful, high-tech, and sustainable fabric that ticks every box for today’s busy, chic woman: machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant, stain-resistant, fade-proof, nearly indestructible, and truly seasonless.
These garments travel very well and look fresh all day - no creases - so they are perfect for the well-traveled woman. And since this fabric will not fray or abrade, we use cut edges rather than heavy hems. The result is a garment with incredible lightness, airiness, sculptural shapes, and movement that you cannot achieve with other fabrics. Cut hems also make alterations very simple, so you can easily get a truly perfect fit. Our fabric’s easy care and durability, combined with our classic-with-an-edge styling, ensure that every Maria Pinto piece you own will be worn for years to come.
- Each piece is intended to have a cut edge, do not put a hem on the pant or it will change the look of the garment.
- To alter, use a sharp pair of scissors and cut straight. The edge will not fray.
- After cutting, bar tack the seams – that's it.

Our signature fabric is available in several different weights, each of which is carefully selected for each garment to ensure the most flattering fit and supreme comfort:
Form: Our heaviest, bonded weight, Form fabric has excellent structure with a nice draping quality. Four-way stretch moves with you in every direction; fitted garments in Form are incredibly flattering and comfortable.
Flow: Flow is our lighter bonded weight fabric. Lighter weight creates more fluidity, giving garments more movement and lovely draping.
Crepe: This single-weight fabric is much more fluid than Form or Flow, but still retains enough denseness to create clean shapes. Our Crepe fabric also has a slight surface texture that feels lovely against the skin.
Sand: Perfect for blouses, our Sand fabric has a little more drape than Crepe.
Liquid: Liquid is our lightest weight, slinky yet never clingy. This fabric feels like luxurious silk against the skin.
Guntar: Our “almost-leather” fabric, completely machine-washable and ultra-comfortable with much more stretch than you’d ever get from real leather.
Made from recycled materials, these fabrics are sustainable in addition to being beautiful and comforting.
